este trabajo es dedicado a mis amigos del ALCA y mi tiempo en panamá. pienso en ustedes a menudo. besos.

panamá – oil and collage 2′ x 3′

in another lifetime i used to travel monthly to panama city

for a couple of years

i grew up so much in my time there

and collected so many delta reward miles

i learned how to be thrown around in a salsa club and by an interest group

was educated on the merits of aguardiente and a good pedicure

and ate enough fresh fish from Jimmy’s on the corner to last a lifetime

…but I would kill for some sancocho right about now

to my friends in Panamá, Miami, Colombia, Guatemala, Ecuador, Chile, Costa Rica and almost all the others in the americas 😉

i paint this nighttime city scape to think of you and to thank you

until we meet again,


city of ottawa





260 fingers

while i have to travel a farther distance to appreciate ceramics and pottery in general, there were at least thirty fingers i deeply enjoyed at the self-subtitled “eighth annual short sweet show of really worthwhile ceramic art” this passed weekend.

the work of Paula Murray at 260 fingers

the very fine work of paula murray was refreshing. lightness in a heavy medium. with my clumsiness i worried even looking at them the wrong way.

michelle bishop’s work haunted me. she plays with the organic form, “a textured vessel to create a hidden space reachable through a small passageway which invites the viewer on a journey to the unknown.”  i am uncertain how she achieves this effect, but the description isn’t hyperbole. very emotive. as pots go.

a last word for christopher reid flock of hamilton. brilliant primary colours. intricate unexpected design. very charming. slightly whimsical…in a most serious way.

if i were investing in ceramics, after the work of my mother, this is where i would start



egon’s miss

egon needed another lady

a medium-sized miss for the series

for an upcoming show

egon’s miss – collage, mixed media  18″ x 24″


life handing me puzzles

and here i thought my crosswords and sudokus were the answer

maybe it is victoria?



pieces of me –   collage and oil   2.5′ x 5′
