Of course, they’re not really bubbles… but that’s life.LOL
Artists get to play ‘fast and loose’ with these things.

This being the last Post of 2013… with New Years upon us in some parts of the world already; BUBBLES seemed appropriate!

I was daydreaming about summer today…
Vancouver’s thick cloud cover and short dark winter days, will do that to you!
‘Hay Bales on #9’ happened in 1997, a great thunderstorm on the Prairies and a camera loaded with infrared film.
It was hot!
Like most NORMAL Canadians… I never complain about the heat!

HoodooVille

Edition of 3- 48″ x 96″…..Edition of 5- 20″ x 40″…..Edition of 15- 8.5″ x 17″


As bitter cold is griping almost all of North America; I thought I’d post a Summer Image from Alberta.
‘Hoodooville’ was inspired by a sunrise trip to capture imagery, without tourists at this popular spot, outside Drumheller. I love the Badlands and I’ve shot plenty of “straight shots” of them. Not this time, a little algorithmic geomorphing and Voila…’Hoodooville’.

Library Worlds

Edition of 5- 46.5"x 93" Edition of 10- 20"x 40" Edition of 15- 8.5"x 17"

Edition of 3- 45″x 90″
Edition of 5- 20″x 40″
Edition of 15- 8.5″x 17″

I’m having a lot of fun with the Library at the moment; so I’m going to keep serving up the “Fresh Stuff”! I couldn’t just call this one “Study Something….” because it turned out to be multiple worlds. Since everything else about it is busy and complex; I’m going with simplicity, in title at least. I like what I was able to do with the wood, in this one. The Chamber is a masterful display of woodworking design and talent. It’s a “Warm Cocoon” of our Living Democracy… repository of all our matters of State, since becoming a Nation in 1867. It was an honour, to be allowed to work here at night, when I had it all to myself…well not quite. Special thanks to the Security Staff on the Hill, without whom, I would not be… serving this up!

Library Study #11

Edition of 3-46.5″x62″
Edition of 5-20″x26.6″
Edition of 15-11″x14.6″


Another in the Library Series…
Library Study #11 is pushing data, information and patterns, to reveal themselves in yet another alternate form.
Since this building is circular, spheres seem appropriate…

Library Mirrorball

Edition of 3-50″x50″
Edition of 5-20″x20″
Edition of 15-11″x11″


‘Library Mirrorball’ is another in my 3 part Parliamentary Series. It’s hard to show all the details of a circular space… on a flat piece of paper. I continue to explore these possibilities on this beautiful library in Ottawa. Charged with doing the research and record keeping for Canada’s Parliament; this is the pinnacle of libraries in Canada. It’s very hard to do it justice in a 2D frame…

Sail Island

Edition of 5- 20″x20″

The inspiration for this piece is a playful and happy place. It’s actually called ‘CANADA PLACE’ in Vancouvers’ harbour.
If you’ve ever come to Vancouver on a cruise ship; you’ve docked here.
Since it’s Winter and i’m board…. i’m taking liberties with it … like a child’s dream, the night after their first visit… there.
