"Backlit Complements", 16" x 12", is a bit of a word-play but it describes the backlighting of the subject and the use of complementary colours. These flowers were just outside our hotel in the Byward Market area of Ottawa and their glow caught my attention immediately.

A month or more ago, I was flipping through photos I had taken, trying to find a subject that I could paint in my studio but fairly quickly just as I would do en plein air or outdoors. "Eye Candy" is a typical view of residential downtown Fredericton. Only 8" x 10", this painting has dramatic lighting and strong colour, hence the title.

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.

We have enjoyed time with our daughters and their families the last few years at Twin Shores, near Kensington in PEI. "Simple Pleasures" (14" x 11"), although not of our family, describes a typical family scene at the beach.

Accepted Into Society of Canadian Artists National Exhibition!

I am honoured to announce that not one, but two, of my paintings have been accepted into the SCA Elected Members National Exhibition. "Backlit Complements" and "Eye Candy", both shown above, were entered and chosen by the SCA jury. This show will be held right here in Fredericton at Gallery 78 and will run from June 16 until July 9 with the opening reception on June 16 from 5:00-7:00 PM.


For those unfamiliar with these types of national shows, it is extremely difficult to have your work accepted since there are hundreds and even thousands of entries. Needless to say, I am ecstatic!
