Greetings from the studio!
I hope that you're having a wonderful spring. Here's the news for June 2013.
Painters at Painter's for 2013, at the end of May in beautiful Campbell River, was great fun and very interesting. I hosted a panel discussion entitled "Social Media and the Arts." Artists Brent Lynch and Richard (not Andrew) McDiarmid were guests on the panel. The intent was to explore how artists approach and navigate the ever-evolving social networking platforms and technology.
As a result, I have started a blog and posted my first YouTube video. This stop-action video, with a voice-over narration, documents my three-day process of completing the demo painting I started at Painters in May. Have a look, if you get a chance ... http://691075302507215949.weebly.com/blog.html
Also on my blog, I will soon be posting a written summary of the panel discussion ... stay tuned for that.

Announcing a new painting trip for the summer of 2015... to the fly-in Crazy Bear Lake Wilderness Lodge, in the Central British Columbia.
If you love painting and fly-fishing, this week long trip is for you. Painting the spectacular unspoiled mountain vistas in the morning, with my coaching available, then fly-fishing in the afternoon and evening. I put myself through art school as a fishing guide and am still a keen fisherman, with 40+ years behind the rod. This exclusive adventure is limited to only 6 guests. More information is posted on my "NEWS" page...

All for the moment. Best regards,
