New studio almost finished!
Hi from our peaceful yet vibrant new digs here in Kimberly, Ontario. We have moved into the shadow of Old Baldy. It is one of the most spectacular spots in Ontario, replete with natural wonders galore. Just west of Collingwood and south of Owen Sound, we are now in the beautiful Beaver Valley in the Grey Highlands.
We are almost finished with our studio renovations. The old double workshop has nearly been converted into its new purpose as mine and Sarah’s new art studio. We are truly excited to be here and even more excited to get back to work. And there is certainly a backlog of images floating around in this painter’s head.
I traveled to Greenland with Adventure Canada aboard the Sea Adventurer in my role as artist in residence (with fellow Drawnonward member, Rob Saley) in June. I am now bursting at the seams with images of icebergs and Greenlandic village arrangements. It was another amazing trip to the Arctic and although we were unable to get into Canada due to the abundant ice left from a very cold winter, it allowed us to see more of Greenland than we ever had before. It is an amazing place with no shortage of scenery to inspire and landscape painter.
Here are a couple shots of what is in my head right now.. Ice and the studio.
More new work coming soon!
Enjoy the last bit of summer and get out into nature if and when you can! It is good for you.
