Self-Portrait Project – Sixteen (Part c) – Is It Strange That…

... I like the early steps so much. What does it say that I feel so much satisfaction from the results I'm getting in the earliest steps that I wonder if it is ok to stop here? The digital image is far more raw looking than the live one, in that it shows the details … Continue reading Self-Portrait Project – Sixteen (Part c) – Is It Strange That…

Gothic Leanings

Early this Spring, I took several pictures of the dead milkweed plants in a nearby field. I've always found these beautiful and used to use them in flower arrangements and other wall-hanging sculptures. The grey tones really appeal to me, even before I started to understand Wabi-Sabi aesthetics. They normally last well into the Summer, … Continue reading Gothic Leanings

Uncertain Frequencies

I've held onto this one for a little while because I couldn't figure out what it was telling me. All I got from it was uncertainty and anxiety. The colours are chaotic. The blending is choppy and frustrated. The piece makes me angry and anxious. It fills me with strife. I want to scream at … Continue reading Uncertain Frequencies

And Then She Walked In…

I was doing a little research on some abstract cubism and came across a bunch of loosely figurative paintings. I was amazed at the expressiveness they offered. I was immediately drawn in to the possible stories the figures were living and enjoyed them extensively. The more minimalist ones offered the greatest room for me to … Continue reading And Then She Walked In…

It could be that person who always seems so certain that whatever you are saying isn't completely true and suddenly fills you with the most frustrating doubts. Not my favourite person the the crowd. This might be why I feel like punching this guy right in his bothersome … Continue reading Oh, I’m Not Sure About That


I let my subconscious draw this one and it feels very much like how I feel about a family crisis I'm going through. Whatever comes next, it will be different. All life is like this, but some situations seem to impact this realization stronger than others. See more at Arts M.Perron:

Distorted Happiness

I noticed that in many of my drawings, the face appears to be smiling, however it feels like a forced smile. As a reaction, I chose to make this face more grotesque to match the true feelings behind the forced smile. This isn't a face of bliss, but rather a face of hidden pain. This … Continue reading Distorted Happiness

Thoroughly Unimpressed

At first it was a copy of thickly painted oil painting, and I was getting frustrated at the great details in the original. So, I decided to let go and just doodle it. What came from it was a simple, even silly expression on the new face, that I am not sure was intended on … Continue reading Thoroughly Unimpressed

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #357 – Spring Morning Fog

Spring Morning Fog Imaginings from what is perceived: The Spring in Montreal is an amazing time of year. The snow is melting and the permafrost is receding to release an abundance of humidity into the air. The fog fights with the sun to build an atmosphere of sheer Halloween creepiness, only this almost never occurs … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #357 – Spring Morning Fog
