letters… letters…

Letters letters letters….. Time to get back to work in the studio….
This work is a study done with an automatic pen #1, gouache, on BFK paper.

I’m thinking of turning this work into a print, and also working it into an embossed version with my etching press.

I came across this photo taken on December 31, 2015. We had spent that day at the Forks enjoying the company of tourists and locals, and taking in the ambience of the artisan shops and buskers performing at various points in this historic area. The day was unseasonably warm, and I got the opportunity to have a photo taken beside the statue of Mahatma Ghandi outside the Canadian Museum of Human Rights. It was a poignant way to end the year and begin a new one.

❄️Wishing all my friends and family the best in 2019.❄️
❄️🍾❤️Happy New Year! Bonne heureuse année!❤️🥂❄️

We finally had some snow falling here yesterday… So very exciting to see the snow fall and settle on the branches in the forest!
I love the effect too of bare branches in the colder seasons — like spontaneous bursts of calligraphy writing itself at infinite angles in the atmosphere…constant state of communication!

eye in the sky

We are having a long run of cold arctic temperatures which can make for some fascinating skies. I took this photo while en route yesterday…
“eye in the sky”
You don’t often see one of these looking down at you at two in the afternoon!

The Book of Laughter

Laughter

Happiness is elusive.
Just when you think
you’ve got a good hold of it,
it slips from your grasp.

And yet,
it’s as free for the taking
as the air that we breathe.

I can hear it laughing.
