Fall Update

It’s been a busy fall even though chase season for me ended at the end of July. I’ve mostly been busy in the studio and I’ve now got all six pieces started.  All of them are still works in progress, although some are quite close. Here’s a look at the progress, ordered by when I started them (oldest first)

Aside from studio work, I was also pleased to be invited to show some of these works in progress at Beakerhead Science, Art & Engineering Festival in Calgary in mid September alongside the Prairie Storm Chasers. Chris is a member of PSC so I got to hang out with him and Braydon Morisseau for 3 days on Stephen Avenue. I live painted, chatted storms & art and tried to stay warm and dry on an unseasonably cool couple of days. Despite the weather, we had fun and the feedback I got on the project was great.

I was sadly unable to attend Chaser Con Canada this year, but I had a previous commitment. For some reason, my son wouldn’t change the date. 🙂
