Thanks muchly!!
I'm very pleased (two days of jumping up and down) to announce that my Listen series will be on display as part of an exhibition at Gallery M in Cambridge ON for the month of May 2016. A huge thanks you to Merryn Edgar and Gallery M for the opportunity. I will post more information as it gets finalized... going to be a busy 3 months!!!
Starting work on the next Listen piece - going to be a heavily rendered large 2'x3' charcoal / pencil - probably going to tun into a marathon.
I've had a few people come at me on the subject matter and context of the Listen series. These are not about religion or any specific spiritual belief. Most of them are self portraits of how I feel or have felt at various times. They are really about trying to have faith and hope at the hardest times. How do I feel when there's no one watching or to impress and it's just me and I'm scared - can I respond with dignity, grace and be humble and ask for help and receive it from whatever or whomever that might be and carry on and be okay with it? The term "god" is used as something anyone can relate to as those things that bind us as people - I think it's our common frailties - can I put one foot in front of the other and trust in the process - and people - of whatever this is and not jump the rail? Can I be decent when my ass is getting handed to me and I'm terrified and not be a prick?
Those are usually the things and questions that are going through my head when I'm working on these... one foot in front of the other.. don't be a jerk.. try to share some love today... act grateful even if I don't feel it :)
There's my yearly rant... tune in 2017 - be nice today :)

Some more charcoal and graphite work following up Listen 7. Depression, stress and ultimately hope and faith were in the back of the brain while conceiving and working on this portrait. I really enjoyed the process in regards to using the charcoal to create the hair texture and exploring the new drawing process.

First Listen piece of 2016 completed! Halfway through the first run at attempting this drawing I started over. I was fighting with the paper and materials - sometimes it's best just to stop. I started fresh and tried out a new surface and used charcoal as the main rendering tool for the first time. I'm so happy with the results plus finding a new working method that suits my needs and taste - little victories are sometimes the best.
