Latest Art Show
Had a show with some other artists at the gallery Arti. From December through to January 2023.
There were many people at the opening. It was really nice to discuss with other artists about the artwork. When you get respect from other fellow artists, you know you're doing something right.
Some future plans are to curate a show with a certain theme in mind.
New Amsterdam Studio
New studio flat. Right in the center of Amsterdam for a year. I am planning on having a couple shows with paintings hanging all over the place.
People from anywhere are available to drop in anytime. Just call me in advance.
Painting in Garage
Various paintings from 25 years ago were adjusted and added to in Vancouver for the hot month of August when I was staying at mom and dad's. Was so kind of them to use their garage as a studio.
Studio inside and outside on the street using found objects....and accessing the back garden to create a 2nd paint studio. Planning on building a light box to go with this 'sweet' series. The light box would be illuminated by arranging an assortment of glowing pulsing lights behind a frosted glass pane.

Paintings can also construct stories mainly based on how one feels. Emotion, imagination, representation, and ultimately the essence of painting is connected to a system of relaxation, awe, inspiration, rest, and tranquility. - Miles Phillips
Looking back with fond memories..
The thing I'll miss the most are the long walks in the green woodsy areas along the train tracks.
