Hank, 2006 - June 27, 2016

My studio cat Hank. He supervised all my work from 2006 to 2016. Here he is at work on my CFAP overhead view. He was the truest companion. I will always miss him.

Restigouche 2016, four versions

Across the water the locomotive moves, only a vague throb, pulse of life stink of diesel. Nature
sleeps in northern darkness. Cold stars shine from infinite heavens and the river flows between
ice and gravel on the Restigouche.

The Ice and Snow in Nova Scotia, February 2015 (2015) 60 x 80 cms, collection, the City of Ottawa

I'm very pleased the City of Ottawa has purchased my work The Ice and Snow in Nova Scotia, February 2015 (2015). The work is based on a satellite image of the Maritimes showing unprecedented ice and snow. The work is a kind of memento mori for my brother Gerard, who died in Truro in February 2015.
