The show at Three Stones Gallery opened on Sept. 6th. The reception was on the 20th. A good crowd convened and enjoyed the show. It's always great to talk to people about what my work is about. I am holding my special visitor, my granddaughter Olympia who is now age 4 months.
The Spirit of Place, The Spirit of Culture will be in the front gallery space, Azure, until Oct. 20th. After that time some of my work will be on view in the Gallery Beryl at all times.
Below is my most recent painting: Inuit Influences: Transformation Totem: Contrasts . It's a diptych on canvas. It's been a while since I painted on canvas. It is different than paper but it has many attributes including not having to get it framed (right away anyway). The left panel is the mirror image of the right and it's a real play on contrasts. It has a yin/yang pulse to it. I felt that each panel wanted be to the more dominate one. The colors really sing . It has a great deal of texture which is hard to capture in a photo. The Inuktitut syllabics I selected translate to the words transformation (at the bottom) as well as the words shaman, spirit, bird and goose.
