This past week end I did the Oromocto craft show from Thursday to Sunday. I did pretty good. I raffled off a painting to help pay for the rental of the table. That helped a lot in the end. It was a very slow weekend but I got a lot of good responses from the people about the paintings done thus far for the Canadian Issue body of work. The only thing that drove me near to insanity was the music playing in the mall. Country music over and over all day long for twelve hour for four days. This week I am working on the Seaking painting aka thorn in my side, a Griffin painting, a commision and a LAV III. Trevor started his Phase 4 couse this week so I will be home alone working my way to finish this body of work. I am sending Bombgurl out to many publishers and well, will see what happens with that.

Here I am on the streets of Toronto last week. I set up usually infront of or next to Mis De Meaner between Soho st and Spadina. It was a great week I did really good and I miss working and interacting with people terribly, aside from the kookie people and their life stories I had to endure. We left our cat in Morin Heights at my parents house duing our time in Toronto. My parents have 3 acres on the simon river, it is very woodsy. The cat was in heaven, every tree was climbed. On our drive back to Oromocto he cried for the first two hours and then sulked. Today he is back to his old self and he seems very happy to be home. When we were at my parents I decided to sell at the large Prevost market. This was a loss and a bad idea I did not make one sale. The people did not know what I was selling, no clue. We resigned ourselves to the fact that this was not the place for selling art , in betwen underwear 3 for 10 bucks and 5 buck cell phone leather cases?????? Trevor and I decided to people watch and we lost count of the freshly cut mullets. We finally got bored and went home to eat guacamole and salsa and drink Corona.

I am leaving for Toronto this weekend. I have a complete stock and I am going to be on Queen and Spadina for next week, weather permitting. here are some of the bamboo paintings I have available and I will have a whole new sleak look. Here is a picture of the painting I did for my brother. He got me and Ipod for xmas and the deal was to do a painting for him. So one of the subject matters was Dirty Harry, 44 magnum 29 special. I hope he likes it. I hope he doesn't see this blog before he see he painting.

So I set up a new blog, It is just on the right, where it says links it says Bombgurl website. I am trying to find a pubisher for the book I wrote s few years ago. knock on wood. Here is the latest painting, I truely love the color, it just keeps getting better and better. I am working on the CH-124 SEAKING the background color is making me giddy already. It is seafoam green fading into white. Yes, quite the lame color but it is a Seaking, and it flies over the ocean. Quite fitting, hahaha
