Fairview Manor Foyer with Come On In 24x24
Just back home from hanging new works for a solo exhibition at the Fairview Manor Foyer in Almonte
Come Walk With Me. . .
Each of these paintings began as an impression, formed while traveling along the sideroads and streets of Almonte and the local countryside. The light in the early evening, the stillness along some backroad are things that resonate for me.
The concept for a painting can develop on the spot or it may take weeks, often with return visits before I start to sketch. Once I get started, the years of painting experience take over and time passes quickly as I paint colour and shapes recording the magic I feel.
Whether the final painting is good, time will tell. I will only sign it, if and when I am satisfied that it speaks the truth.
Exhibition runs from April 9 to June 11, 2019
Vernissage, Meet and Greet, Thursday, April 25th from 7-9pm
