Odds and Ends – 4 art projects

Aug 10, 2015 – I continue to work on four unfinished painting to develop my skills at doing under paintings and using oils for colour.

The four unfinished paintings are the following:

1. The Bold Street Project
2. The McClure House
3. The Central School Project
4. The Elgin Street House

The McClure and Central School projects were started as on location, sketch-paintings. The Bold and Eglin Street projects are based on photo references.

With all four projects, I will be using reference photos to complete the works. The challenge at the moment is to determine how to use these photographic references. How I resolve this challenge will shape my approach to the larger project of creating 24 works focusing on the theme of my “My Home is My Castle.”

Inspired by architecture and landscapes, my art explores our relationship to place, memory and identity. As a mid career artist, my art practice includes: painting, murals, short films, and sound art.

This is the official web site of the Save Century Manor Task Force 2 (CMTF2). This task force was created not only to draw attention to the existence of Century Manor, an important Hamilton heritage building in danger of demolition by neglect, but also to provide information on Century Manor and to gain support within and outside our community for our ongoing fight to save and preserve this heritage building through restoration and adaptive reuse.
