Onwards to the West Coast!

As is my wife and I’s usual summer… I’m finishing up work in my studio before travelling to Hornby Island on British Columbia’s west coast.

This past month I have been steadily adding materials to my website and look forward to the opportunity while away from my studio to organize and reflect on my art career to date. It’s interesting how I dug myself into a bigger hole than I expected… but they say the first step to getting out of the hole is to stop digging!

Without sounding too dense, I’m looking at the progress of the website today and feeling a real sense of achievement. Fifty years of producing art doesn’t necessarily correspond with fifty years of keeping it all organized! Remember slides (before the age of computers!)… well recall, of course, that my first twenty-five years of making art occurred before the computer was even in use by the public.

So, I’m getting with the times step by step.
