A painting in progress. Oil, Conté and Mylar on board. Not the best photographs but you get the idea…it’s what’s happening around here today…
Fading Magnolia Leaves
I’ve been collecting gracefully decaying leaves. It seems that magnolia leaves are ideal for this. They fade away slowly leaving behind a beautiful structure of veins. They photograph very nicely and today I was photographing them in the late afternoon with the sun streaming through the window. The tangle of leaf skeleton makes for amazing shadows. (You can enlarge each image by clicking on them.)
I recently posted some photographs of a new Hydro Electric Station in Almonte, ON. This set of photographs were taken at the updated original power station located up-river from the new one. This station was built in 1925 and refurbished in 2010.

I‘m lamenting a summer with virtually no climbing because my partner is currently suffering from Golfer’s Elbow. Golfer’s Elbow?! You can get that even if you’ve only golfed twice!? Ever!?
The month of September is traditionally a month when we go on a climbing trip but it’s not happening. The first day of September and this beautiful weather just gets me lusting for some rock.
