|Echo... LIVE? JOURNAL?
To quote the haunting Pink Floyd song, ...Is anybody out there?
I was searching for lost images of artwork and remembered some secret stashes from days gone by and found some of them here. I was surprised and delighted I even was able to get back in so easily after many years away and felt grateful I had maintained some old email addresses though the years. Lucky.
While scrolling through dilapidated posts, I read comments never seen before from people I still know and connect with on other social media platforms. What a curious place with comments unappreciated until. Thank You!
I started LIVEJOURNAL a good plenty years ago (2002?) so seeing it now made me wonder... Does anyone even use it anymore? In a strange way, I hope not as it might be a fun to make this a 'secret' place to post things not on the larger social networks. Likes goodies. Aw. I miss Goodie. Does anyone remember him? This could be a place to safely stow personal thoughts. Thoughts?
Leave me a reply/comment to let me know you're there and what you think --this could could be fun. *EG*

24 x 24 Acrylic on Canvas 2009
It was very difficult to photograph this paintin. It is very glossy and the digital camera did not like the reds and kept bleeding the edges of the shapes making the image look murky.
The title is a reference to a scene from BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S where HOLLY GOLIGHTLY (Hepburn) talks about the 'mean reds' being like the blues except it's when you're affraid and you don't know why or what you're affraid of. This is an imagined landscape --an interior world or emotional plain. I'll spare you the rest of the art speak.

AUTUMN IN TORONTO
24 x 24 Acrylic on canvas 2009
I've always love Toronto in the late fall, after the couloured leaves have gone and before snowfall. There are so many browns and it's like the city is going to sleep for the winter. I did CHURCH & WELLESLEY because it's the gay village in Toronto. For those that know the area, on can see MAPLE LEAF GARDENS at the bottom in the middle.
I'll be making prints of this which will be the first print run I've done. This will be included in the solo exhibit that opens on Thursday in Toronto. Should be a fun night.
Next up: BARCELONA. (in orange)
52"x26" Acrylic on Canvas 2009
