Painting Space

I’ve been getting into the studio in Rimbey every week, just not as often as I’d like.   And in spite of that the paintings are progressing.

I’m pretty sure that my age doesn’t have anything to do with it, but this boomer suffers from a special kind of ADD that tends to affect creative people. There is apparently no cure.  I’m interested in making art, writing, SiFi and Fantasy, science, technology of all kinds, books, quilting and movies.

However in that past I did work as a freelance writer for a  bit and get over 60 feature length articles published before I stopped counting, or lost interest.  I’m not sure which came first.  My second novel (I disappeared the first) will be self-published any day now. I hope.

Some of my artwork is in the Canada Council Art Bank Collection and a few prints and paintings live in private collections in Ontario, Manitoba and BC.  I’m still working on re-homing a few in Alberta where I now live.  Wall space at home here is getting scarce.
