‘Tribute to Don Messer’-2017, 45″x45″
This is the time of year when new memories are made and old ones are enjoyed…
Don Messer was the youngest of 11 children and began playing fiddle at the age of five. This huge beautiful fiddle sculpture is a tribute to him in Harvey, the town closest to Tweedside, New Brunswick where he was born. The fiddle is “larger than life” just like he was.
Canadians couldn’t get enough of Don Messer, as television came of age in the 50’s and 60’s. He popularized East Coast fiddle music wherever he went… and he went everywhere, entertaining Canadians young and old.

‘Box Canyon Dream #1’-2006, 40″x 90″
I wanted to go to Georgia O’keeffe’s ‘Ghost Ranch’ in New Mexico. I love desert and I was hoping to understand New Mexico’s attraction, to O’keeffe. I can say; it has a timeless and dangerous beauty, that can kill you and Wow you, at the same time. For a creative person; it is an intoxicating mix of otherworldly beauty, immersed in a unique and dangerous palette.
Ghost Ranch is awesome!

He did his, in a film darkroom; I’m using a computer. I never imitate “Masters” but I do learn by seeing.
Here’s a tribute to Man Ray…

My Dog “George” thinks he owns this forest!
He carefully sniffs and dispenses his “social media communications” on all his carefully selected spots. He carefully analyses everything through his nose. I’m convinced he’s primarily a nose attached to a brain… Like any dog; if you don’t distract him from his nose, you won’t get his attention.
How do dogs dream?
I’ll take a shot at it; here’s George having an “out of body, experience”…
