Gems of Healing Wisdom

A lot of my paintings contain stones, gems and metals that help give my work some beautiful texture, but there’s more to them than just their aesthetic qualities. Many ancient teachings from various cultures have taught us that stones contain energies within them: these energies affect the person who comes in contact with them. I… READ MORE

Ice Bear with Babes in the Fog

We were stuck in the pack ice in the fog in a deep bay. Distance and size of objects gets very distorted in this kind of light especially at high latitudes. After observing two different adult bears on the ice in quite close proximity to each other, we eventually spotted a mother and two small… READ MORE

Being Healed by Brasvellbreen

This painting “Being Healed by Brasvellbreen” comes out of my recent trip to the land of glaciers and this is one of the world’s longest.

Desert Petroglyphs

Coming across petroglyphs in remote desert landscape always fills me with awe, and wonder, and excitement. I somehow feel like I’ve just made an enormous discovery, like America or something. The mystery of it all is very captivating. So many questions and so few answers. Musandam, Sultanate of Oman These were all in Musandam, near… READ MORE

Ice, Beloved Ice

Lots of people in downtown Toronto are jumping for joy with the very early spring/summer we are presently experiencing. I’m talking about temperatures in the 20 degree range day after day…in March. Personally, it makes me quite uneasy but, still, one is thrilled to see the spring flowers and best of all, to hear the… READ MORE

Petra by Night

New Paintings From Morocco

As usual, after a trip, I try to push the output of paintings before I have fully processed the experience. I find this to be particularly true for abstract work. In other words, there is still only a little to show from my desert trip. Here is my friend Mimoune, one very smart camel whose… READ MORE

Fun in the Dunes

This beautiful dune was too much to resist! I wanted to have a few trips of racing down and struggling up ….just for the fun of it. One of the Berber camel herders travelling with us, Said, thought that we could only be joking. He clearly had never done anything like this ….. playing around… READ MORE

Crystal Hunting in the Desert

I have just returned from the northern Sahara where I was on a camel trek with the Berber people. We were in an area rich in fossils and could easily find crystals at our feet. I found quartz, amethyst and vanadinite. I was very pleased with the vanadinite because it is quite uncommon; this stone… READ MORE
