Art show at 4 elements, Kagawong, Manitoulin Island, Ontario

Hi there!  The good news is we delivered the paintings and the show is off and running at the 4 elements studio, right there in the town of Kagawong, Ontario, on beauty Manitoulin Island.  That gallery is a room with a view!  I believe we have at least a dozen new pieces in the show including a re work of this 1990 classic:

For Missing and Murdered Aboriginal Women, Acrylic on canvas, 36x58 inches

For Missing and Murdered Aboriginal Women, Acrylic on canvas, 36×58 inches

The show opened June 25th,  a beauty evening including the drive to and from using the backroads from Tehkummah to Kagawong and back, always made fun with a selection of fun music.  We have the good fortune of being in 4e until the middle of August. Miigwetch to all those who came out to see the opening!  Here is a snap shot of one of the rooms.

Scenes on the Art Bridge

this 4e show is coming up fast!  last night i was on the art bridge working up a sweat finishing a few of the last minute Heavy Duty pieces like:  “For Missing and Murdered Aboriginal Women”, 36×60 inches, and “For Missing and Murdered Women”, 36×48 inches.  heavy duty pictures and i’d admit now and especially last night there were mixed emotions while art was happening. this morning my sweet daughter Jazzy Moon and i were walking out to meet the bus, 5 school days to go!, and she saw the bridge and said:  Dad you were going crazy last night! indeed!  there were some wild scenes out there. but this morning, long after the battle was over, i came upon these scenes:

unfortunately these pieces will NOT be available at the 4e show!

New work. New ideas! A new look!

Truth be told I am excited about seeing this new work collected and on display in the same room!  I’ve been playing with the sketches, dabbling on the “art bridge”, walking after midnight, singing Norah Jones “Come Away With Me”, and counting my lucky stars!  And here we are, ready to go with a brand new show filled with a new look, a new idea.

New Shoes

Some lovely words…

glass paper copper wood

Why does it feel so good to have you
taller
than
me?

We two such long-time friends
equal in stature — eye to eye

But still,
somehow
this new height excites

You are

other
taller
bolder

and some other adjective
I can’t quite get a handle on

But I do like the change
these new shoes
have made

in you.
