A few photos from the Opening Reception of March 28th, 
including some riveting early Canadian portraits 
from the fabulous BENSEN Collection ... 

My favorite two paintings:: Timothy Eaton, Grandson of retail titan Timothy Eaton,
painted by by Maurice Codner in 1930 - 
(Timothy Eaton was founder of Eatons Department Store, an icon of Canadian retail) -
and a charming Mrs. Woodhouse, painted by Nathanial Dame, circa 1750.
In both instances the depiction of 'character' and use of colour are exquisite.

The Crowd at McMaster Innovation Place.


Third fav portrait of the evening:  my pal 'Petey'
in front of my landscape on the ground floor of the Atrium at MIP.

Two New Oil Paintings - Winter Magic & Snow Stars

It's been a rotten WINTER all round:  little snow, no ice, no blistering winds, or sustained frozen temperatures. There has been little back-breaking digging: no frozen breath, dribbling noses, frosted fingers or cold toes. There's been no crunchy steps on crispy mornings, no delightful snowflake swirls or crystal clear starry skies.  In short, no blissful white magic. I have missed it. Still, the mood, the feeling, the underlying sense of it all lingers deep within this 'canajun' psyche. Thus, these two new oils revere what hasn't been: WINTER'S MAGIC. - Enjoy.

 'Winter Magic'

 'Snow Stars'

Both items are FOR SALE.
