Flurry of painting

Well April has pasted in a flurry of painting.  Here are some images from my small tribute to Parkwood.  So many of you talked with such attachment about the site that I thought it would work well as a little series within the series.

Secrets of the painters studio

Ok so I was working on my latest painting and it got a little covered up.  So I thought that I would post the underpainting and the finished work.  I transfer the underpainting on to the surface of the painting before I start working.

The colour is a little off in the photo because of the reflective nature of some of the interference colours that I have added to the glazes.  If you are looking for the story behind the story follow this link.

A few more pics

I'm starting to post more paintings.  It's always a little disappointing for me because the camera doesn't capture the collage layer under the paint, I guess everyone will just have to come to the exhibition for that!

See if you can identify the person in the paintings or who it may be about.

Some paintings

Things have been going well in the studio, so I thought it was time to post some pics!  These images are based on stories from Leone, Philip, Linda, Arthur and a few misc. comments about the Lake front.
Look forward to putting it all together in the gallery.

Long time between posts

My thanks to everyone for giving me so much good material to go through.  Now that I have sorted the bulk of the material, I'm heading into the studio to start painting.  I'm also going to try to update this blog on a semi-regular basis.
I will be using peoples personal stories for the exhibition and also the many impressions that participants had of Oshawa.
I have been finding some great on-line resources to combine with the images and information that I collected in Oshawa.
My favourite archive of the week is
a tribute to those of you who shared fond memories of this Oshawa location.

Looking for:  (this will be a regular part of blog entries)  This week I'm looking for an image of the original Oshawa Motovated sign.
