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.

This is the main drag of the Junction neighbourhood in Toronto where I live. At the twilight time of day just after the sun dips below the horizon, there is a wonderful light show combining the sky, streetlights and traffic lights. I am always struck by it, and is never exactly the same from day to day.
This is a study for a larger painting. I zipped through it fairly quickly (I love that), but then I decided that it needed a few more brush strokes. Big mistake. I ended up doing the sky over again! When will I learn to leave things alone!
I am happy with it now, but it was pretty good before I decided to "fix" it.
