Springhill Dark


This is one of my favourite paintings, so I want you to see it. It is in a collection that includes what the collector considers to be the best of "affordable" west coast Canadian artists. He has four of my paintings. I'm flattered that he included me. Its a very crowded field to be selected from. This part of the world is infested with artists.

Ron -
This is great, I can see why it was snapped up. I love the strong sunlight and the way it strikes the building, auots, junk...grass. And then to make your point you have the deep shadowed area. Love it!!!

Thanks, Cara. Its fun to construct these things- to make them up and then to see how many different ways they can be done. If you look back you'll see different versions of the painting. By the way what happened to "Real Thinker", we are his only commenters.

Just personalizing the ol'blog, giving it that folksy flavour. Step right up and see the blog. Thanks, N.N.(more personalizing folksy flavor).

Made it up you say? I lived there in 1962.

I love this painting. It's truly one of your best. Love this color palette and the height of everything creating nice calming lines--perfect.

Thanks, Michelle. I'm going to have to do some new big drawings.

Ooooh! I really like this one. Nice contrast, color, drawing, etc. It's all good.

The weather is warming up and I'm trying to get my radiation from the sun instead of the computer monitor. Sorry I haven't commented much. I've been visiting, though.

Thanks, Michelle,
Its dangerous out there, be careful. There's people on the loose everywhere.

Michelle Smith said...

People like Uncle Milfy?

Do you think you are lucky to be in an "infested with artists" area? Where I am, no one every heard of artists. Just wondering how that plays out. We should trade sometime....no...no....you'd be begging after 48 hrs to go back to uncle milfys infestations.

Ron Morrison said...

Michelle, worse.

Ron Morrison said...

Michele, mixed blessing...

Well deserved accolades Mr.! Never thought of it but an artist infestation? That I would pay to see and also bring my flea collar. Always glad to see your vintage works!

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks W.K.,I think it is important to see the work of an artist over the years not just what he batched up for the DPs.
