soukatsat show - good vibes




I love taking photos of my clay sculptures like it's a poster and you can pin it on the wall. Love each of them just like they were all my babies.
Today's Friday and I'm at the souk@sat show. If you're in Montreal or a Montrealer, you've got to come by and see all the amazing products for sale. Quite astounding the talent that's out there. And there's such a great vibe to this venue. Have a drink at the bar and take your time to browse and drool at the many holiday options available for the people on your shopping list or just for yourself.
The show continues until Sunday, November 29th, so don't delay!

Lee 36


Lee 36
, acrylic on panel, (6" x 8"), 2015


SOLD

Mmm, mmm....doesn't this portrait just make your heart quiver?
Does Rochester from JANE EYRE or moody Heathcliff from WUTHERING HEIGHTS pop into your head?
Aren't some historical men just so sexy? It's probably because they can enunciate all their words clearly.
Here's a poem I came up with while staring at this guy (historical portraits can do that do a girl):

"Drink his liquid eyes
 and eat the rest of him quick
 before his luscious lips squish your heart to bits."


I know, it's a little dramatic, isn't it?

Bubblehead 19



BUBBLEHEAD 19
,  acrylic on panel,  (5" x 5"),  2015

So it's official. I finally painted all my 5" x 5" square panels. BUBBLEHEAD 19 is my last painting on that size.
A square canvas is a rather peculiar space to work on. Not everything can be squeezed into such a dimension. Portraits work well. And the faces need to be large. Small people on square surfaces look lost. That's what I've concluded after all this time working on these square panels.
Good-bye 5" x 5" and hello to bigger, larger portraits.

A new portrait. Not anyone in particular. Very contemplative expression.

BUY SOME DAMN ART portraits



Bubblehead 12
, (acrylic and pencil on panel), 2015

This is the 2nd in the series of modern portraits now on at BUY SOME DAMN ART.

November is officially here and we are now in the dark days of daylight savings time. Nothing says winter is coming better than hibernating indoors and feeling like it's 10 o'clock at night at 4pm in the afternoon.

This month I've got 3 shows happening:

▶︎ BUY SOME DAMN ART

▶︎ Handmade Harvest HOLIDAY show coming up this weekend on Sunday, November 8th, 2015 in Almonte, Ontario.

▶︎ Souk @ sat design show at the end of the month from Wednesday, November 25th - Sunday, November 29th, 2105
