It's been a while since I posted, due in equal parts to a) taking stock of my direction/re-focusing b) being under the weather, and c) chillin' out. Next week it will be back to business but in the meantime I thought I'd share a wonderful book that arrived yesterday: Painters Eleven: The Wild Ones of Canadian Art by Iris Nowell. 346 pages packed with vibrant, sophisticated, joyful images! Wow! Just what I needed. I've been working at semi-abstracting the landscape over the past year and the middle two images just clicked when I saw them. I very clearly see landscape influence there! I'm not well-versed regarding the Painters Eleven so I am looking forward to reading the biographies and will share more as I know more. For now, feast your eyes!
