Happy Canada Day

Hanoi Vietnam 2017

Found this picture from our trip to Vietnam back in 2017. I love those buildings, cities, country etc.. This will be the first summer in a very long time that we will not be getting on a plane and going somewhere. We had a complete tour of the Balkans booked and then cancelled. We would have been in Bosnia right now! Oh well, many have it tougher than a postponed trip, and it’s nice to be celebrating Canada day a little closer to home. Be well.

Finding the Landscape

The rolling mountains and bamboo thatched roofs of Northern Vietnam informed this one.

Another painting from the residency. This is a bit of a departure for me; as I am starting to incorporate the landscape in a more direct and literal fashion.

It’s been a little quiet around here this summer. I was away for a month, where my wife and I had the extreme pleasure in participating in an Artist in Residence program at the Muong Cultural Center near Hoa Binh in northern Vietnam. We were there for a week and then spent another 3 exploring that brilliant country. Here’s one of the works I made with my time there.
