Open Letter to a Bike Thief, Part 2

I lost yet another to Montreal bike thieves. It is depressing and enraging… there is not much more I can say about someone who steals bikes. Here is a post I wrote a few years ago when Bike #2 was stolen : Open Letter to a Bike Thief.

MY Studio

My studio
This is where I have been working the past few months. It is working out quite well especially since it is just down the street from where I live.

This is an example of one of the small paintings I have been working on. I am also working on some other landscape paintings that I consider more “forest paintings” – paintings of the dense woods instead of the more vista type paintings I have been doing. I will most one of them soon – perhaps in progress…

Studio Search : Ended

It had been a while that I was looking for a studio, but last month I found a place to work. It is a nice, smallish place with large windows on Pine Avenue near St Laurent Blvd (for those familiar with Montreal).
