My 100 & Me [WEEK 20]

As I often drive by this little body of water, I’ve constantly wondered who build this awesome structure on the bank? It doesn’t appear to ever be used, as I’ve never seen a boat or other watercraft down below. I can’t see any paths leading back to larger buildings or houses…

My 100 & Me [WEEK 12]

More abstract images from the archives. These were originally posted to my Instagram feed so for the few of you that follow there intently (thanks hun!), you may have seen these already. My apologies. During the summer, you can really see the greens, yellows and browns come out in these pieces.

My 100 & Me [Week 09]

How quickly life can lead you in other directions. This blog is super important to me yet it’s been over a year since I’ve updated it. Why? I could list a thousand reasons – all of which would probably be valid in one way or another but I think the truth is that sometimes I just feel like I don’t…

Winter Tree of Life

If you frequent this blog, you’ll know that I found this amazing tree that I’ve called the “Tree of Life.” It has these long reaching branches that entwine and feel like they reach on forever.

Ninth Concession ICM 02

Another trip down the Ninth Concession just outside of Westport Ontario yielded some amazing new pieces of art. I love using the Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) technique along side a fogged lens, some double (and triple) exposures, and a lot of luck, to create something unique (at least to my eye)…

Foley Mountain Before the Storm

The heavy rain clouds I saw approach Bedford Mills earlier in the afternoon led me to believe there was a system of storms coming towards the area. While others might have said: “good time to hunker down and hide away…

RMG Exposed

I was feeling pretty good about the art that I was creating. Maybe a little too good. The Robert McLaughlin Gallery in Oshawa Ontario holds an annual event called RMG Exposed where they ask artists to submit works and then a jury of art influencers select pieces that will be sold in an art…

Wolfe Lake Rd ICM

Making progress with my photo impressionism. Driving down another local road, I found rolling hills and glowing fields of amber and orange from the late day sun. It was a perfect time to stop and not just admire the beauty, but interpret it in my own way. I love using movement in my photographs. It can not only be…

Ninth Concession ICM

My Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) work has been expanding in both scope and results this past month. I’ve been taking heavy inspiration from Monet and Turner (as always), with a little J.E.H. MacDonald mixed in. More recent artists such as Valda Bailey, Chris Friel and Andy Gray have helped in shaping…
