Thank you head cold. For reminding me that I love having taste buds. Now that you're gone, I miss you very much. Won't you please come back?
Well-Travelled is a series of 10 canvasses painted between February 22 – 26, 2015 in the idyllic French town of Saint Germain-en-Laye, France. Inspiration and artistic expression during this period reached an all-time high.
Spring Favorites is a collection of paintings created in Winter/Spring ‘15 in Calgary, Alberta. The artistic retorts to my environment. Having recently come home from Paris, France I can’t help but notice and appreciate the stark contrast between the two cities: One very old and mature, the other, new and youthful.
Paris is quite possibly, the most beautiful city in the world. It has all of the things I love: Art, culture, history, fashion, food and the French language. And now it's even better for another reason: Fearless Abstract Painting. Making a "Top Ten" list proved to be incredibly difficult. Here are some highlights, although it does not begin to encompass the magic I experienced:
I met a cat. I ate a duck. I'm in love.
Renting a studio outside of Paris means we get to see more of the jaw dropping country side of France. What can I say? When I think this can't get any better... it does.
Somebody pinch me. Im painting in Paris!
Anyone mind sharing any jet lag cures? I woke up this morning feeling like I had been sat on by a hippopotamus. When I finally ventured out of my hotel room, I did not intend to walk as far as I did, but I just couldn't help myself. I'm in Paris!
This blog was created to share my belief that the art-making process is a catalyst for transformation and personal empowerment. I am living proof.
