As an adorer of amphibians, summer to me means….frogs. Teeny tiny tree frogs, to be exact, that sing their creaky little songs as the rain patters down.
This is one of three paintings that will become this year’s posters for Feast of Fields, a glorious outdoor food event that raises funds for local farming initiatives. Dig the smilin’ sheep!
I’ve just completed this poster for Intrepid Theatre’s production of the young adult play, “I Have Seen Beautiful Jim Key”. Written by Intrepid’s Janet Munsil (a recent Governor General’s Award nominee), the tale of trust and kindness between a freed slave and his horse melted my heart. In case you’re wondering, the space at the bottom of the art is for insertion of times, dates and ticket prices. All lettering is hand rendered!
Canadian farmers throw away a huge percentage of their fruit and vegetable crops because many consumers won’t buy produce that doesn’t look perfect. Get with it people! Ugly eggplants still taste great!
This glow-in-the-dark cycle path, powered by LED and solar power, has recently opened in Eindhoven, Netherlands. Let’s make it happen here!
Since eating and painting are two of the great joys of my life, I resolve that 2015 will be dedicated to both.
Just published-the winter edition of “here” magazine, with my art on the cover. A ton of loving hours went into this. For the record, my work is not computer generated-it’s all hand painted. Every piece of clothing I own has a blob of cobalt blue or scarlet on it somewhere.
Yes it takes a bit of time to paint and draw and write each day of your trip…but it’s such an enjoyable experience to revisit an illustrated diary-plus your friends genuinely want to look at it! This is from a bleak and beautiful March in Cornwall a couple of years ago.
Sure, the holidays can seem like the epitome of (largely self-induced) madness sometimes, but I love this season with all of my heart.
…to quote the Bare Naked Ladies. This little guy just wants to make people happy!
