Midnight Plein Air

I went out with a friend at midnight one rainy night recently and painted the wet city streets near my new apt here in Toronto. I've wanted to do this for awhile now, but this is the first time I've actually gone out at night to paint a cityscape. It was pretty fun!

Collaboration Issue of Poets and Artists Magazine

My work is featured in the latest issue of Poets & Artists (Oranges & Sardines). It's an honor to be in the company of so many other great artists. For this issue Didi Menendez has paired artists with poets, who worked together, discussing a theme that interests both, then each created a work on that theme. I was delighted to be paired with Matthew Hittinger, a New York-based poet, and together we collaborated on the theme of personal armour. You can see the article online HERE. With Poets and Artists magazine, Didi has created a wonderful venue for artists to show their work. It was an honour to be included in this issue and a pleasure to work with Didi. Didi created an interesting theme for this issue and did a lovely job putting it all together.
