inside the artist's studio

Thought you might like a visit to my studio. It's my hang-out, work place, study corner, retreat centre, sanctuary, and chapel, all in one. Here's a link to the youtube video ( 3 min. )

Oh deer!

Been doing a lot of reading about uncertainty reduction and predictability as part of a research paper. But then this fella appeared outside my studio. The young buck helped me remember that as much as I would like to reduce uncertainty by predicting the events of the day, especially as I get older, there remains a thrill of the moment when an unexpected something catches me by surprise. Next week I start my summer elective course. It’s called “Digital Tribes.” Oh deer! No doubt the research will have many surprises.

Beats writing research papers

Gotta admit, she’s one fine picture. I’m holding Keanna, just a few hours after birth on Saturday morning, June 12. It’s our 5th grandchild and she is a wonderful reminder that life is more than just research papers, textbooks and academic degrees, as much as I enjoy them too. But, a newborn baby wins every time. Perfect timing. In between the end of courses 502 and 503 and just before the summer elective of 597.

Always wanted to do this

Always wanted to do this. It’s my first studio piece since the Edmonton Spring Institute. My passion for old documents gave me the idea to create one myself. It’s done in metalpoint media on paper with an ink rubbing of the text. It’s not meant to be read of course. Just so there is no confusion, it’s not an old document or a copy thereof. It’s an original drawing I made to look like an old parchment. It’s 30 X 22 inches. Plus it’s good to be in the studio again. Enjoy.
