Archive for the ‘about’ Category
I am a painter and have lived in Montreal, Quebec, Canada since 1998. Before Montreal I lived in Halifax, Carrabassett Valley, Bouler and Providence. I grew up in New Brunswick, Canada.
The idea for this blog started as a place to post images from my sketchbook. While it has remained this to a large extent, it expanded in scope as well. I also have been posting images of works in progress from time to time. From this I have developed a method of working where I work on images of unfinished paintings in Photoshop before continuing with them in the studio. Furthermore, I am also posting a fair amount of material in the Politics and Ideas section. These are mostly articles that I come accross in my reading of numerous web sites. And lastly I also post things from my trips or general life in the Day to Day section.
You may also view examples of my art work on my portfolio site here – www.markdixon.ca.
