I don't normally accept commissions but I was asked by the City of Fredericton to do a painting of the 100 year old (plus!) wading pool at Wilmot Park. I had done a number of paintings of the wading pool in order to capture it before it was demolished to make way for the new splash pad and I based this piece on my plein air work. I know the kids will love the new facility but I hated to see the wading pool go because our family has many memories of our times there. "Wilmot Park Wading Pool" is an 11" x 14" oil painting and I'm very proud that the City was happy with it and excited to add it to their collection.

"The Beaver Fountain", 8" x 10", is a plein air painting I did recently at the Loyalist Burial Ground in Saint John. I've always loved the fountain with its infinity edge as well as the beaver sculpute, of course. On this particular day, there were many school kids around and I was very happy that they seemed so interested in what I was doing. Maybe some will become painters!

"The Sliding Hill" Limited Edition Nearly Sold Out!

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.

Solo Exhibition at Saint John Arts Centre until Oct. 27!

I have a solo exhibition opening at the Saint John Art Centre on September 8th. This exhibtion will be in the Canada Games Gallery and will feature approximately 25 oil paintings.


The show opens with a public reception on Friday, September 8, from 5:30-7:30 PM and will close on October 27, 2017. If you are in the area, I hope you will be able to view the show and, hopefully, attend the opening reception. The SJAC does wonderful work in exhibiting art and a large turnout is expected. Please come and join us!

As I had reported last time, both of my paintings, "Backlit Complement" and "Eye Candy", were accepted into the SCA Elected Members national exhibition which was held at Gallery 78 in Fredericton. By all reports, both paintings were well received and got a lot of attention. I'm delighted, in fact, that "Eye Candy" was sold to a collector from Kamloops, British Columbia.

Society of Canadian Artists National Show

The "Paint the Past" plein air festival at Kings Landing Historical Settlement was held on Sept. 16th and 17th. I was accepted into this event again this year and painted on location with the other entrants. On the afternoon of the 17th (Sunday), there was an exhibition and sale of the paintings which were produced on site at Kings Landing. I did two large paintings (for me) on the first day and got off to a bad start and an eventual wipe-out on Sunday.

"Paint the Past" at Kings Landing--Sept. 16-17

"The Swing", 11" x 14", oil on panel. This is a beloved swing which used to hang from this tree 20 or more years ago. Many people have said how much they miss it.

"The Jones House", 20" x 16", oil on linen panel. This building was disassembled, the stones numbered and then reassembled on site in 1972. A remarkable building!

These paintings, and others, are available for purchase until closing on October 9th in MacBeath Hall in the Kings Landing Reception Centre.
