This event happens every other year and this year, I am the recipient of the 1st PLACE AWARD for 2D (painting category) for my painting:  3 MOONS OVER THE CASBAH.   W0W!  Many thanks to Ladysmith Credit Union for their very generous cheque.  The Ladysmith Waterfront Gallery is an impressive space.  The show they hosted is one of the very best I’ve attended.  http://Ladysmith Waterfront Gallery

Senior Signature Status

On March 8, 2015, the Board of Governors of the Federation of Canadian Artists awarded me the the status of Senior Signature member – SFCA. This is the highest achievement in the FCA and I’m incredibly honoured.

OPUS AWARD – Painting on the Edge

It was a huge challenge and honour to be accepted into the FCA’s annual Painting on the Edge International Juried show in Vancouver B.C.  Super stiff competition!  Much to my surprise and absolute delight, I was awarded the OPUS Art Supply Award for my painting – A Matter of Substance.

 Thank you OPUS for your kind corporate support of the arts and I will certainly enjoy this award.

Juried Members Exhibition

I was very fortunate to have a painting accepted into the Juried Members Exhibition in Toronto, Ontario.  It’s being held at a fabulous gallery – the J.D. Carrier Gallery – and I’m so excited to be part of it.  The painting being shown is…”Tipping Point”

"Dot Com" and I in Vancouver

My focus this year is to push my limits, explore and take a few more risks with my work.  One of the things I have done, is enter more shows off the island – in particular at the main Federation of Canadian Artists Gallery on Granville Island in Vancouver.  To my surprise – great success!  In the 1st three shows I entered, I was accepted into all 3 and even won 2 Awards of Excellence.  So….now to paint, paint and paint!  Life is Good!

Dreamscape Series: When the Wind Blows

I just got word that I have had two paintings accepted in the Sydney Fine Art Show in Sydney, B.C.  I’m absolutely thrilled that “When the Wind Blows” and “Tanglewood” were among the 350 out of 1250 entries to be accepted.  They are both experimental pieces from my Dreamscape series and I’ll be doing lots more long those lines.  Please come and see the show or check it out on-line:
