Listen 33-35 WIP 01
Some progress on the latest Listen piece which is a three part portrait triptych (each is 20" square). These will show each step of my painting process in the final result (warm ground, white paimbura underpainting and layered colour). The gold leaf is new to the arsenal. LOVE the results - was intimidated having never attempted gilding before (as well the complexity of the ornamental halos). Two parts practice / experimentation and one part throw caution to the wind... on to some colour. These will be for my upcoming November solo show with Westland Gallery in London.
Feisty today - badass, bring it on. 💀😈

Latest Listen piece completed, life size 18"x24". Bit of an emotional/spiritual self portrait covering the last two years. Sometimes you need to be hollowed out to make room and be filled with something greater to come. This was done using Zorn's limited palette of black, white, burnt sienna, and naples yellow (cheated a bit with prussian blue).
Happy with both the technical / emotional results and process of it - wanted to a full skeletal study for a long time as well as expand on a drawn design I did last year. Had a few people say it's dark but I see it as the exact opposite, about getting down to the bones of things. This is the push off piece for the show I will be doing with Westland Gallery in November.
I do have Giclee Prints available - 12"x16" on high quality archival paper - hit up the link below if you're interested - $100.00 CAN includes SAH.

Took a two month journey with this piece, very happy with the final result as well as the experience.
Conceptually it's woman as an symbol of god. If you look at most religious systems the description of god (bringer of life, caretaker, nurturer) seems to fit more of a mother's traits. Most religious texts were written by men for men and it might just be possible that a higher power that creates life and cares for it is the gender that actually does that. I wanted to present a non-sexualized, unidealized nude with quiet power. 
I've wanted to do a life size nude painting for a long time but was a little intimidated - wasn't sure I had the skill / technique level to pull it off. Learned ALOT on the journey with this one and it was a confidence builder.

For those interested here is the original and print information.
15"x30" Giclee Prints are $145.00 CAN which includes SAH and taxes. The image area is 15"x30" and is approx. 65% of the original size. The artwork is a high quality giclee print on acid free archival paper and comes packaged in a re-sealable clear plastic sleeve. It is shipped in a cardboard photo mailer. 
Here is the link to purchase:…

I had SO MUCH FUN with the painting. More of an experiment in edges and colour/temperature for some upcoming paintings I want to do. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT.
This will be the last piece for the Feb. Massachusetts show... I swear. If anyone is interested in prints I'll have it figured out in the next few days or just drop me a line.

And it's done! Super happy with this painting. I wanted to get a different look and choose to handle it in a higher key (lighter overall). Love the balance and flow throughout the painting, sometimes you just know it's done and you can walk away smiling. This is also the last painting for the upcoming January solo show. I was expecting a mad scramble, nice to be ahead of the game for once.
