Had a wildly amusing time at Hot Docs today.
I do believe it was a full house!
We'll be doing it again soon. 
Maybe a "Curious Minds" series.
Ideas?

"The Tempest: Pythia, Katrina & The Furies"
oil on canvas
6ft X 4ft.

Working on the storm, and Pythia, who presents herself to us as "the woman clothed in the sun". I'm having a wonderful New Year's Day! Played a few little Chopin ditties, a prelude and a waltz, this morning. Getting my musical mojo back into shape....I'll attack the nocturnes later this week, and move on to Rachmaninoff once my fingers get back into shape. Don't you just love the feeling of rejuvination that the New Year brings.

Just started my new and probably last work in my current series “The Adventures of Pythia, the courageous Canadian girl, as she tries to save the world.” "Pythia & The Iceberg" has Pythia arriving, via hot air balloon, on Innaarsuit Island, Greenland, at the moment when a giant iceberg, taller than Big Ben, threatens to overwhelm all living there, during the summer of 2018.


This painting is 60” X 60” (5ft X 5ft), and is oil on canvas. Not sure when it will be done, but I made enormous headway sorting out the shapes and colours over the last few days. Christmas is always a very creative time for me.

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"
oil on canvas 
5ft X 5ft

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. 
"Miss Pythia at her Annointing"
48" X 36" X 2"
oil on canvas 




 

Please see my Large Paintings Portfolio for more details.

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.

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...
