Rose-Marie Goodwin, an artist friend of PT, has just been published in a new book. Here is a sample of her work as well as a message from her!
In Our Midst III
I am honoured to be included in the just-published and released "ARTISTS OF BRITISH COLUMBIA" book (pg 21-24). Copies may be purchased in retail bookstores, or directly from us at a reduced price of $15 (plus shipping).
This time of Advent, in the Christmas season, is even more special for me as "Unveiled" was selected to be included in the Advent Reader published by the Canadian Baptists of Canada. Just before the entry for December 14. This is freely available as a download.
Watch in the coming weeks as we release each painting in our new series "In Our Midst" on the website, Facebook and the like (for those who are really interested, please request a link for a premier viewing of the complete series). This includes the Award-winning "In Our Midst I" of the 2013 American Art Awards (4th place "Abstract Expressionism"). This wonderful new painting series is inspired by the beauty of Mackay Creek in our midst in North Vancouver. Since finishing the series, the Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation announced their Mackay Creek Estuary Restoration Project with Seaspan Shipyards for this area. Exciting.
As a full-time artist, I have enjoyed my studio at 195 Pemberton in North Vancouver, but will shortly be moving to a new space as the building is going through an estate sale. Stay tuned, then come visit!
Watch for these upcoming 2014 solo shows:
1. Kay Meek Centre, West Vancouver starting April 29 2014. Exhibiting and several talks about art and my experiences, reflecting on being an "abstract expressionist".
2. Silk Purse Art Gallery in West Vancouver beginning August 26 2014 of the full new series "In Our Midst".
Merry Christmas and the very best wishes for an enriching New Year!
