“Home in the Country”: a dreamy painting
After being accepted into a new gallery in Ottawa, where I had to supply a number of paintings, followed immediately by what is probably the largest solo show that I have ever done, at Galerie Lydia Monaro (Montreal), I was feeling a bit tapped out. I had painted and painted, in order to meet all my deadlines, and so after the gallery opening in Montreal, I took a few days to gather my senses. After I felt human again, I decided to work on a small painting, “Home in the Country”. I think that all the pressure I was under made me dream of being in a relaxing place, with a slower pace. This painting depicts my (day) dream!

Little series: The Night Before and The Morning After
I painted these two little paintings, on wood panel. They’re very intimate, and they speak of that time when I’m in the safety of my home, tucked away, safely in bed. I struggle with sleep, often only getting a few short hours per night. Insomnia does things to one’s brain, making it difficult to function normally, throughout the day, at times.
