And longer, more optimistic days are upon us. Thank Space!
(as issac asimov would say in “foundation” – my metro book as of late)
Another Way Down was a larger painting that i completed in early March. Quite often i prefer perspectives from ground level, placing the viewer into the scene directly, but this is an overhead view of an intersection with Downtown Montreal off in the distance. It’s been a long winter, and i guess i’ve been feeling a little ‘far away’ this past few months.

In a completely different direction is this painting (still in progress) of a partridge hunt, very loosely based in reality.
it is a bit of a modern take of those classic hunting paintings. Hunters on horseback with a pack of dogs, blowing a bugle, wearing top hats and orange coats.. etc.
Instead of horses there’s atvs, and the dogs are represented by Lou Lou, my Yorkshire terrier, and Frank, my brothers Havanese.
Hiding in the painting is a partridge,but you need to look close to spot it. Partridge are REALLY good at hiding.

Halfway through March i went out west to visit old friends who have recently moved to a small town in the mountains of BC. Coincidentally they also own a self portrait i did last year of me in Havana, so i took a quick photo to commemorate our reunion.
I look a little rougher around the edges, Cuba-me still looks the same.
A few other paintings were completed after i got back… which due to the grounding of all air canada’s 737 Max8s could have easily been a sequel of Planes, Trains, and Automobiles… just a lot less funny.
