This was a labour of love. It took an incredible amount of time to paint, the fish undergoing so many slight revisions until we were all satisfied. The perspective felt a little tricky at first, but resolved itself as the plant life was added at the end. What is happening here? What has been discovered? What is this orb doing, what will it do? As with much of my work, this is not a moment of truth, a fait accompli, but the moment before everything changes. There is a hush and an anticipation. A curiosity! The wealth of this life is about to pour forth in unexpected ways.


So yes, it's true. My first solo show in Edmonton City in a couple years is about to begin. I would be so happy and so honoured to see you come out and take a look at what I've been working on for the past while. I'll be there from 1-4pm and look forward to it!
