I am an artist working in oils (for now). I make studies of the qualities light using various subjects that interest me, especially animals, landscapes and still lifes. Art is a lifetime journey.

High Park Fall 07 No.1
I walk dogs in High Park and I am always noticing the light effects on the trees and other aspects of the park. It's hard to get too focused on anything other than my dogs, so I have to go there without them and really have a good look around. I did that in the fall, and took some photos that I am using for reference in a series of small paintings.
There is a spot in the park where the light filters through the trees and it is quite spectacular in the fall and winter. There are often people walking their dogs in the area, and I think it would make a nice little painting. I want to set up my easle in the park at this spot.
