Some Works from 2015

What am I up to?

In January I started my mural projects in the schools and finished the last school in Rouyn-Noranda in May. This year I travelled to Escuminac, Quebec and Montreal, Gatineau and Namur. See This Year's Murals at the bottom of this page or all of my murals on my Mural Homepage.

I had an exhibition "Balance" at Café 349 in Shawville, Quebec from January 26 until February 22.

The Câmara de Vereadores de Piracicaba displayed reproductions of 41 of my Brazilian and Carnival paintings in their Hall de Exposições in São Paulo, Brazil to celebrate Carnival from February 5 to 27. The exhibition is called "Imaginando o Brasil".

I moved to Montreal in June so did not participate in the Pontiac Artists' Studio Tour. When I am comfortably moved into Montreal, I plan on a busy exhibition schedule, and will keep everyone informed about my activities.

We have moved into a very nice apartment where I am able to display my paintings well, and have a exciting new studio to create in. I'm looking forward to settling in. If you would like to stop by and see what I am up to, I would love to show you.

I have also been doing paintings digitally using a tablet, and am impressed by what is possible. Follow me on Facebook and Fine Art America.

Parkview Elementary School, Granby, Québec                       April 4, 2015

On April 8, 9 and 10, 2015, I worked on a mural project at Parkview Elementary School in Granby.

The theme was "Peace" and I created a background resembling a train inspired by Cat Stevens' song, "Peace Train".

The students filled this background with truly inspiring images and Cat Stevens' song was used in the video. I'm very pleased with the result!

Bravo to all participants.

"Looking Back - Looking Forward"

Hadley Junior High School, Gatineau, Québec                       March 26, 2015

On March 24, 25 and 26, 2015 I worked on a mural project at Hadley Junior High School in Gatineau.

The theme was "Looking Back - Looking Forward".

I created a series of pages as if taken from a diary or sketch book as a background to represent the past, and falling stars to symbolize the future.

The song "Time Warp" from The Rocky Horror Picture Show was used in this video and I'm pleased with the result.

Bravo to all students!

Les 16, 17 et 18 mai 2015, je travaillais sur un projet de peinture murale à l'école Jean-Nicolet à Montréal.

Le thème était « Vers le Pacifique ».

J'ai créé un fond de fleurs et d'oiseaux comme inspiration pour le theme de La Paix. C'était la première fois que ces jeunes artistes ont dessiner avec un marqueur noir sur un mur. Le résultat est magnifique!

Bravo à tous ces jeunes artistes,

"The Art of Reading"

Parkdale Elementary School, Ville-Saint-Laurent, Québec                       March 13, 2015

On March 11, 12 and 13th, 2015, I worked on a mural project at Parkdale Elementary School in Montreal.

I created a background of book covers and pages to illustrate the theme of Reading.

I decided to use the song "Livros" (Books) from Brazilian composer Caetano Veloso. It's the only song I know that speaks directly about reading in a very poetic way, saying "Reading is responsible for the expansion of the Universe" amongst other beautiful verses.

Bravo to all students and art teacher Karolyn Liverman for this beautiful realization. Karolyn is responsible for infusing this piece with great attention to details.

On January 12, 13 and 14 I worked on a mural project at Escuminac Intermediate School in Escuminac, Quebec.

The theme of this project was "We All Play Together" and all the school's students
and teachers took part on it. This school is like a large family and it was a pleasure to witness their reactions to each other's creations.

The result is wonderful!

Bravo to all the participants!!
