figments: new still life paintings August 29 to September 11, 2020

For this show, I returned to one of my favourite subjects: the whimsical still life. Some of the compositions are not arranged according to my usual approach. They are painted from reference photographs I took while visiting Little Woodham 17th Century Village in Gosport, Hampshire, UK, last September -- though the birds were added in my studio. These pieces are special to me because this is a part of the world from where two of my forebears emigrated to eastern Ontario in the early 19th Century. 

(Update, October 31, 2020: This show is now sold out.)

Chrystia Freeland's portrait for Rhodes House, Oxford, UK

Last fall I received a commission from the RP (Royal Society of Portrait Painters) in the UK: a portrait of Canada's Minister of Foreign Affairs, Chrystia Freeland, for Rhodes House in Oxford. The portrait is now hanging above the Head Table in Milner Hall, alongside Nelson Mandela, Cecil Rhodes, and the Second Century founders. I am delighted and honoured to share these photos of the painting as I photographed it, and as it now looks in its frame at Rhodes House.
