Foyer Gallery from Oct. 24 to Nov. 11: a watercolor painting, a mixed media painting and a photographic work.
The first is my latest watercolor in the Canadian Parliament Building carvings series: " Ethelbert Keeping an Eye on the Politicians". Some people say that if Ethelbert looks depressed it's because of the tough job he has:-)
My second piece in this Foyer Gallery Show is the mixed media "The Happy Dance of the Weeping Tree":
Rothwell Gallery, an Ottawa gallery that has been established for over 30 years! I will provide more info and pictures in the weeks to come.

This painting is a departure from my usual style. It has the look of a vignette and I basically used a two-color palette with only a hint of pink and purple simply for my own need for color ( although these colors are really not visible unless you get extremely close.
"Ethelbert" is about 14" X 18" on 140 lb SP Fabriano, from that 11 yard roll that I bought and wanted to try before starting to work on a commission that requires extra-white paper. I was quite happy with the paper and its "whiteness". Sigh of relief...
I hope that you are all having a wonderful fall and that you will find something that you like in my "Ethelbert".
