I am pleased to annnounce that I have been accepted and been awarded a bursary to join this year's Toni Only Project, eight days of painting in the remote northern town of Wells, B.C. under the mentorship of two senior Canadian artists, Harold Klunder and John Hall. http://www.imarts.com/artschool/83/toni+onley+artists+project
I am so excited! Wells is close to Prince George, Barkerville, and the Bowron Lakes. I've never been that far North (in the interior) and really look forward to the view, getting out of the city, painting and interacting with other art people.
The word of the week is "hollow". To that end I thought I would post this image of my newest (and largest!) painting, "The Cities Of The Old Will Fall And The New Cities Will Rise". It is , acrylic on canvas, painted to "Dust In The Wind" by Kansas. Kevin stretched this canvas for me as an anniversary present, as well my mom bought me a video camera and I have recorded the painting process. I will post on youtube, but first want to figure out the editing program! I'm not very tech savvy so bear with me.
I thought "hollow" as in a valley suited this image quite well incidentally. To see more detail, visit the "Landscapes" section of my site and click on the image.
