Listening 1 - Dr. Dallas Willard

Sometimes I paint in silence. Most of the time I look for podcasts to listen to. Most recently I have been listening to many podcasts off of The Veritas Forum. One speaker in particular is rather powerful in his knowledge and presentation: Dallas Willard. Nietzsche vs. Jesus Christ: Who holds the true path? is an interesting review of how the the West transitioned to a secular society. Highly recommended.

Whats up...

It's been a busy 5 months: since leaving Calgary in June I 've gone from  Portugal to Florence, spent 2 days on  boat sailing to Elba, took a one week workshop in Madrid, visited Dehli, Udaipur, Jaipur and the Taj Mahal in India where I was so  overwhelmed I spent the following weekend in Milan recovering. I have been working on a number of portrait commissions and experimenting with new approaches (to painting) and new subject matter (landscapes) all in a new format (small). Here is some of what I have been up to:

Ritratto di Stephana

Rachel (piambura study)

Pomodoro e Aglio

Moinho da Apulia


This is the study for the project I am finishing up:


I can't let you see the final version until the client does!!
