Halifax in 3D is the latest painting to come out of the studio. It is 2x3ft and 6inches deep. Made out of 3/4" blatic fir plywood and paint. It is a nod to some of my earlier 3D Halifax paintings although more refined and considered. I made this painting to take with me to a television audition in which you present something made out of a sheet of 3/4 inch plywood. Most folks will probably arrive with a nice piece of furniture, a chair, night table etc. Of course, in the attempt to set myself apart from the crowd, I am showing up with a 3 dimensional painting of my town. Maybe the painting will help me move further along in the audition process. I will let you know...

Here we are again, getting everything ready for another folk festival. It is a wonderful way to make outsider art, with the cloak of folk on. The goal is to capture a sense of humour and whimsy, like chasing a beautiful butterfly to trap for yoyr collection. Good folk art should be as light as a warm summer breeze and as my old pal Tom used to say, "it should reach out its hand, smile and say" hi, how are you?"
This Sunday the new Mars explorer will be landing on the planet at the same time of the festival, makes sense.

The Titanic disaster happened 100 years ago this april. This painting is a memorial to the lost souls of the sinking and a metaphor for the follies of man. If only they had a crowd of people on the bow of the ship looking out for danger, they could of avoided disaster.

Halifax 2012 is based on a photograph taken by the famous Halifax photographer Chris Reardon, who hung out the side of a helicopter to capture this scene. Then the image was run through my head, eyes and hands and we came up with this brilliant monster. If a work of art reflects the artist, then it appears I have not grown up as I try to knead childlike cartooning, N.S. folk art Fauvism and Pop into a golden warm, sweet smelling image loaf of our town by the sea..
