Most of my work is a journey, as well as statement of my surroundings. Things happen all around us all the time, whether we acknowledge them or ignore them are always up to us.

I try to record some of mine, but life moves so fast, I just can't get them all, I attempt to nail down a certain Idea, feeling, something I have seen, or story I've been told, an experience that has made a lasting impression..... We all have similar pleasures and fears I attempt to come clean, without spelling everything out, I would rather you try to figure some of these things out, come up with your own conclusion, to have you pay more attention to your own world.

At one point or another we all end up in one of my paintings, what you see here, could help you decipher where you are, where you have been, and where you are going.

Not all of it is pretty.

The trip was fantastic....
At first I a bit apprehensive of going it alone, but quickly was over that feeling once I got there.
The Canadian people are quick to give a smile, and seldom give wrong directions. there's only two ways in, either boat or float plane.
I met up with several groups of people for cocktails and had a great time.
When cousins from Minnesota showed up my last two days, the party was called "historic"and once again I had a really great time.

I finished a few paintings, fished, and shot some pics here's a few to give you an idea how it looks and feels

It’s beautiful and majestic pictures. Canada seems to have this solemn beauty. Interesting description of Canadians. I also find them friendly.
Your work looks professional and very personal (as usual). :)

Your good for the soul!
You never tire of complementing my work.
These photos were actually pretty easy, I just waited for the light to change, or the weather to move.
it not like when I crawl around the city, when I do that I can spend half a day looking for something, and only come away with 1 or 2 photos that are any good.
