Show Time

Well the time is here that every artist waits for. The time in the journey to take the next step, or what ever we think that next step might be. For me that next step is getting my art in front of as many people as I can so that they can see and appreciate what it is that I am so passionate about. What better way to do that then to hold an exhibit that features your hard work. I like to call it the "Solo Show". For me, it started last night.
I have spent the past few weeks pouring over the framing table to get the pieces show ready and it was nice last night to sit and enjoy it with the one I love. It does feel nice to see my work hanging for everyone to see.
Wish everyone out there could come see how it looks as well. I will try to share the moment by taking some pictures of the venue later on.
Thank-you to everyone who has stopped by to see this unfold. It is your kind words that mean so much. :)

Bute Inlet Fishing Hole - Grizzly Bear

I'd like to share with you the final image and story for this piece.
Bute Inlet, cutting into the Coastal Mountain Range of mainland British Columbia, is renowned for it’s majestic mountain vistas, rugged unsettled land and Grizzly Bears. In the fall of 2008 I experienced these bears up close and personal at Orford River; so close at some points it was all I could do to stand my ground. Thank goodness for our Guide and his “bear stick”. With this piece I hope to give you an up close glimpse of this magnificent giant. May they continue to fish these waters long after we leave.
Thank you for stopping by my page and taking the time to look at my work. Kevin

Latest Preview

I thought I would step back from the framing table and take a break from show preparation. I wanted to give you a glimpse of the piece that's on the drawing board. I hope to have this work completed for the upcoming solo show at the end of this month. Here is a tiny preview for now.
