Happy Victoria Day.
I've been working on the top half of Moose Man Spirit.
The painting is so large that when I reach up to work 
paint can dribble down, so I want to spare myself a lot of correcting 
in the middle & bottom sections. I'm excited about 
the progress of the painting. 
Sorry the photo isn't very good - it's a very dull day.
Other news - I've worked out the composition for the next piece 
in the series Messengers During a Time of Pestilence - 
it will be Great Bear Sky. Great Bear Sky will be 6ft X 5ft as well.

May the fourth be with you.
Well, I did say I would post the first forays into
"Messengers During A Time of Pestilence" 
so here is "Moose Man Spirit & The Hurlers"
(title change May 12)
It's 6ft X 5ft, oil on canvas. 
I'm still working out the play of colour. 
At this very early point I must admit that 
I love the rich jewel box palette, but I think you can see that 
it's nowhere near done. I'll keep you informed.

 As I apply the finishing touches to my Pythia Series
I am absolutely over the moon to announce that 
I have started a new series.
It will be titled, in true Suzanne fashion
"Messengers During A Time of Pestilence".
The first messenger painting, which I started yesterday,
 will be called "Moose Man Spirit & The Harpies".
Just wade into your cultural legends to suss that out.
At least the first two will be 5ft X 6ft.
I'll post an image in a bit.


March 28, 2020
 Hope everyone is doing as well as possible.
I am getting lots of work done. Thank heaven for small mercies.
I'm trying not to let this difficult time go to waste.
Stay healthy my friends.

It would seem that Pythia has decided 
to arrive on Innaarsuit Island, Greenland 
as the skateboard queen. 
Just sayin'
  I'll keep you posted....

Notre Dame Burning: Pythia & The Great Red Dragon
has been rather slow moving. It's very large, 6 feet high and 4 feet wide to be precise, so it simply won't be rushed.



July 25, 2019

Well, today is really  going to be a good day.
My just about finished Pythia Series has been featured in


Canadian Art Junkie

Please have a look.












Well, "Pythia & The Christmas Eve Baby" is done.
It is inspired by the Christmas Eve, 2017, birth of baby white rhino, Theodore, at the Toronto zoo, and the adventures of Clara the rhino, born in 1738 in India and painted by Pietro Longhi. Miss Pythia meets the mother rhino and baby Theodore at a Venetian Ball.
It is 48" X 60" X 2" oil on canvas..

Click below to see what a big boy Theodore is now!!!!!

Theodore is now one year old!!!

"Pythia in Paris as The Seine Breaches Its Banks"

Working on the text engraved on the bridge, which BTW, 
is from a Pablo Neruda poem. 
Figuring out Pandora and her "chaos in a box" difficulties.
Added some scarlet tanagers leading the rowboat. 
My mother's favorite birds, also BTW.

Pythia was the designated name taken by each Oracle of Delphi upon her investiture.

48" X 36" X 2"

Yesterday "Bears Picnic" was installed in its new home. 
 And, yes, that's my "Yellow Road: Faraway" up beside it on the left. 










September 18, In The Works

After a short hiatus painting drowning maidens, exotic flowers and deadly frogs, I'm back to my "Canada 150 Series", with this almost done painting of a herd of musk ox. Did you know that musk ox wool is the finest, warmest and most expensive wool in the world? Probably the most rare as well. 

"A Musk Ox Dilemma: What Time is it Mister Wolf?"
oil on birch cradle, 37" X 48"









I love a surprise!
Just got home and found that I had been featured, once again, 
by J. Walters, in her terrific
Canadian Art Junkie
Blog.

Please check it out.

The London Guardian Exhibition & Media Exposure:




Here's a lovely digital assemblage of the Kings Place Guardian Exhibition now open in London England. Scroll down to see my Large Bowl of Fruit I .

The London Kings Place Exhibition ran from September 14 to October 9.  Kings Place is a new art complex beside King's Cross Train Station in London. The exhibition was presented by London's world famous Guardian newspaper. The curator was Guardian art critic Jonathan Jones aided by Hayward Gallery curator Gilly Fox. My oversized fruit bowl was included. Four feet of melon, pears and grapes....

I forgot to post this Guardian feature of a painting from my Yellow Road Series. It's called   Listen, Snow Flakes Falling.
Here's the full image...


Here's another Guardian featured drawing, from the same Large Bowl of Fruit Series as the one in the London show...Large Bowl of Fruit with Crow & Murmuration
