‘Tribute to Don Messer’

‘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.

‘Solarized Left Breast’

‘Solarized Left Breast’-2004, 14.6″x 14.6″
Of course, when one applies a solarizing effect; it’s natural to think of Man Ray.

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…

‘George’s Forest Dream’

‘George’s Forest Dream’-2017, 40″x40″

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”…

The beautiful North Cape of Prince Edward Island is melting into the ocean. Its fragile coastline, takes a beating with every storm. The erosion is alarming and beautiful at the same time.
It’s Natures beautiful creative-destructive sculptural collaboration, between sea and land…

‘Harvey Gothic’

That’s Harvey, New Brunswick, in the summertime with my pals P&M.
Fortunately, not all of New Brunswick looks like this.
Better people than this, are hard to find, even on flat land!

‘North Atlantic Morning Globe’

This is what happens when you start shooting before morning coffee!
Nothing is straight and the colour isn’t right…

Being at one… with sea, rocks and sky at Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia.
