Parking lot behind Struts Gallery

I roughed this sketch in with pencil, then moved to a Carbon fountain pen, and a Pigma Micron brush pen. 5 ¾ × 8 ¾″ Stillman & Birn Gamma (150 gsm ivory paper) Cars are challenging. I used this sketch as a guinea-pig for some pigment-testing later.

Railway bridge over the Tantramar

Watercolour on 5 × 7″ Langton watercolour pad of the CNR bridge over the Tantramar River on the edge of Sackville. Made for Sweetest Little Thing 2016. Private collection.

Abandoned house between Mount Uniake & Hall’s Hill

This little watercolour — on Arches 140-lb. cold pressed paper, about 4 × 3″ — was made for The Sweetest Little Thing, 2015. The house itself is unoccupied and in considerably worse shape than depicted. In a private collection.

The Wood Block, Sackville

Pencil sketch; 5 × 8 ¼″ Moleskine sketch album (120 gsm paper).

Home in Port Elgin

This pencil sketch is of an abandoned house next to the Village Office in Port Elgin, New Brunswick. There are so many beautiful houses like this around, but they won’t be for long.

1st-year drawings, from 1991/92

Mainly drawn on throw-away newsprint, about 18×24″, they’re just simple exercises, having no merit as art. In keeping with that, these reproductions were hastily shot on an iPhone with available lighting with no effort made even to remove folds, wrinkles or avoid shadows. But for me, they’re a snapshot of what I was doing, in another life, twenty years ago.
