Thur. Aug 26 2010 – Xochicalco

This image is much more impressionistic than my usual work. It has more to do with feeling than with detail. I wanted to convey the sheer power that exhudes from this place, so I used bolder and wilder strokes than usual. I also gave it a bluish/purplish tint because this is the colour I see a lot in special places in Mexico, as if Spirit manifested as a tint over the landscape.

Monday Aug. 23 2010 – Vermeer Woman

This one’s a take on Vermeer. I’m afraid I’m very far from the master, but I enjoyed painting this one all the same. As usual, thumbnails below access a jpeg and detail view. Thanks for visiting.

Great Surreal Pictures of a merchant ship in Montreal’s seaport

An excellent collection of wonderful images from the Saunière, an old merchant ship in the Port of Montreal, by my photographer friend Georges Dutil. He’s actually done remarkable work here. The level of detail is incredible, even though this is hard to see from a low resolution image from the Web. I have seen large format giclées of his work – AWESOME!
