All Canvases are 2018 & 2019  (I replace all works available in two year cycles) original paintings created with the finest Artist quality Acrylic paint and mediums with the best Acrylic Polymer varnish out there.

The substrate I use is Deserres own mid price brand (unless stated otherwise) of wood stretched cotton gallery wrapped canvas (3/4″ Depth unless otherwise stated) with a quality gesso primer. I use no other! I’ve tried the cheap brands over the years but I’d rather spend a bit more for the quality and durability of the Deserres.

All pieces arrive with a wall hanging kit & custom packaging.

Direct from me pricing does not include extra vendor/gallery fees added on (which usually doubles and often triples the purchase price). Best value when purchased right from moi!

Long-term projects and special techniques that require the additional process of securely mounting 300 gram papers onto gallery wrapped canvases.  Often a combination of Acrylic washes & intricate Pen & Ink or unique texturing mediums.  Minimum of 6 coats of varnish are required for these pieces.  

Raven and Apollo

Size~ 6 x 6
Medium~Acrylic/Pen & Ink on Canvas mounted Paper.
Title~ “Raven and Apollo” 2019
For Sale~ $70.00

The main story of how Apollo and Raven came together goes like this….Apollo, the ladies man (God) that he apparently was got pretty bored one day running the Sun across the sky. He flung a White Raven (may have been a crow-historians haven’t fully decided) to spy on his current Love at the time Coronis only to find her cheating!

Apollo was so angry when Raven brought him the news that he scorched Raven’s feathers Black in his fury and they remain that way to this day.

Title~ “Greenwood TTC Yard 2018”
For Sale~ $250.00

Fantastic & free entertainment to take young children!  The TTC Greenwood Subway Train Yard in East Toronto.

Took me sometime to varnish this one.  I think I subconsciously want to keep it, a very nostalgic piece of me and my younger boys when they were little.  We often did this, especially in the evening to see the sparks fly!

(Images have been taken at various incomplete varnishing phases)

Winter lights, Christmas lights, have always captivated me.  Though much more on the Realism side of painting styles, I used an un-orthodox color palette for this piece including Pink.  True Love in Toronto!!

I have been focused on sort of a “split screen” split image pieces of late.  It is similar to how I actually see too often…blotched, half-of, not complete bits during migraine aura.

And I Love this color blue and Birch trees.  A fun piece to do!

For Sale~ $320.00

Pen & Inking is my first love!  I began doing ink way back in Grade five, Fourty years ago…Egyptian artifacts were my inspiration then.

Over the years architectural design has been a large part of my inked creations.  This can be seen in this piece, a Stairway to Heaven composition.

Combined with watercolor Acrylic washes and colored inks with a steady hand and keen eye. 

Selected for Sweet Dreams & Candy Coated Nightmares: A Group Exhibition Oct 25 – 31 at The Freedom Factory Gallery Toronto.
