New Commison

In this time of Covid,there's very little money to be made as an artist. With all the galleries shut down, all the in-person shows cancelled,the only thing we have is our online shops. So when you get a commission,it's a good thing. I'm extremely grateful. I got a commission for a 60”x24” scratchboard…
The theme is the North Atlantic. This particular commission is being designed for a people who own a house on Ile Madame. They want to celebrate the beauty of the creatures that exist there. They loved my piece, "Wanderlust" and want something very similar. I will take you through the process of this piece being created.
“Wanderlust”
This is the beginning of my new piece . First thing I do is come up with an image. I do a drawing and then I transfer the image onto the scratchboard with white transfer paper.
Not sure what to name it yet but I am going with the working name” North Atlantic dance”.
In this image I have included many sea animals;Right whales because they are becoming extinct. Some animals that are typical to Nova Scotia like black bears and hares. 
The fun begins. Stay tune for the next episode .

Time To Be Creative!

So life now seems long and different. With all these lockdowns because of Covid. Yes, I find myself very uninspired and kind of lost. I’m used to having the pressure of shows and getting ready for them creating new stuff. But it’s time to be creative; hopefully, my classes and workshops are ago. If you’re interested, please check out the event pages; I hope to see you there.

A New Press for Me.

One of the highlights of 2020, other than the fact
That we survived it in one piece.
The purchase of a Prada etching press.
It was on my bucket list to own a decent press.
A fellow member of the Ontario Society of Artist
was selling her press.
It’s a good feeling that I own a press made in Canada.
The possibility of printmaking became real again.
My old press was starting to fall apart.
The fun part was transferring that from Brampton to Peterborough and figuring out its logistics. With help from Friend Jan and his friend Kidd
we got it done. I also find it very interesting about this Press as it’s been around for 30 years pass from one artist to the next. The stories this Press could tell.
I am so excited. I look forward to some new prints.
This year.

New Praga press to me.
