Getting closer

Today I sanded, primed, and painted over the repairs; worked on the larger figures and gave a third and final coat to the rooftops and doors. There are 2 more figures to be painted on the far right side.

Back to the mural

After a week's break, it's mural time again.
Today was the last day for working on scaffolding - hurray! I plan to have the mural completed by the end of this week.

A little more colour ...

We're working around the area that needs repair where the electrical outlets and conduit were removed.

A little more detail...

Thank you for attending last night's opening

Thank you to everyone who travelled so far on a miserable rainy night to view With Sturdy Shoes in Tsawwassen. I worked on this series for 9 months and so last night was very akin to sharing with all of you my newly produced 'baby'. I don't have the words to express how much I appreciate your support.

I've begun work today on a painting for the 'After Picasso' exhibition slated for February 2007, and I'll be posting images of those paintings as they are produced.

Enjoy your weekend!

Winged Mother With Sturdy Shoes #6

Here's the last work I finished for the show.

For those of you living in Delta, look for me on Arts 'Round Town, DCTV Channel 4, 9:30 p.m. Wednesdays and 10:30 p.m. Fridays until the end of June; Patti McGregor asks me to explain my use of symbolism in the With Sturdy Shoes series, and I do my best not to stutter or bumble too much through the interview.

Here's a little bit of the show ...

With Sturdy Shoes opens today at the Tsawwassen Art Centre

I spent the afternoon hanging 20 paintings at the Tsawwassen Art Centre and, if I do say so myself, the show looks mighty fine.

I had more than enough works to fill the space, so the painting above with the cut out floating figure (one of my personal favourites) had to be left out.

The Artist Reception for the show is next Thursday night, June 8th, from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. - feel free to bring your friends.
