I was walking in Wilmot Park one evening last year and the stark contrast in this scene caught my eye. This is a little 8" x 10" which I did in my studio but I set up as I would for an outdoor plein air painting and went about it just as I would outdoors. I'm happy with the result. "Bright Lights", oil on canvas on panel, 8" x 10".

Although I prefer to work from life, I sometimes use photographs as reference material. I painted "Rhododendrons" (11" x 14", oil on panel) in my studio from photos I took in Christchurch, New Zealand in 2011, several months after a 6.9 magnitude earthquake had destroyed much of the city. These beautiful blooms were in stark contrast with the devastation all around them.

Solo Exhibition - Fredericton Public Library

I am very pleased to announce that I have a solo show coming up at the Fredericton Public Library, beginning on December 3, 2016. This exhibition will feature seventeen paintings, including a number of my very favorite works which I had kept in my own collection until now. Approximately half of the paintings on exhibit are new works from 2016 with the rest having been created within the last few years.


Among these works are "Sudden Flight" which I feel is one of my best paintings to date, "Spring Renewal" which was accepted into the prestigious Oil Painters of America Eastern Regional Exhibition as well "Rhododendrons" and "Bright Lights", both shown below. This exhibition opens on December 3, 2016 and will continue until January 20, 2017.


Please join me at our opening reception at 7:00 PM at the Fredericton Public Library on the evening of Thursday, December 15th.

Image Chosen for City of Fredericton Holiday Greeting

I am very proud and grateful that the City of Fredericton has chosen my painting, "The Sliding Hill", for the Annual Holiday Greetings message from the Mayor and Councillors.


This painting was done en plein air at the Neill Farm and is from the collection of David and Susan Morell who were kind enough to loan the work for display in the Mayor's Office for the holiday season.

An Afternoon With the Fredericton Art Club

It was an honour to be asked to address members of the Fredericton Art Club and my great pleasure as they were a very keen and engaged group.

I introduced myself and told them of my introduction to art, explaining that I was basically flying by the seat of my pants as I had no direction. I showed them my plein air set-up and discussed the benefits of plein air painting.


We finished up with a brief tour of my solo show at the Fredericton Public Library with a discussion of several of the paintings.

I want to particularly acknowledge library staff members, Mélissa and Julie, who were so helpful in setting up chairs, providing drinks and even erecting a portable wall! Thanks!

New Release -- "The Sliding Hill" Limited Edition

I am very grateful that the City of Fredericton chose my image, "The Sliding Hill", for their holiday greeting this year. Many residents told me of the times that their families had spent on the Neill Farm and expressed their desire to have a copy of this painting. As a result, I have produced a limited edition of signed and numbered archival reproductions and offer these either framed or matted.


The image size is 8" x 10" and the frame dimension is 14" x 17". As these are collectible and there will only be 25 available, they are expected to sell out quickly. A significant portion of each sale will be given to the Fredericton SPCA.
