There's a first time for everything. First blog entry on my new site! Posting some very old photos from my old studio at the Art Barn at the University of Manitoba. I have very fond memories of my time there....Thought I would put them here in my new Blog since I recently cancelled my old one, but I did save some of that content. I always find it hard to "start off" a blog, from scratch, so I thought this might be a good way. Post some old pictures from the past and work my way up to the present, or perhaps even the future! I'll throw in some new photos of my new studio for good measure.

a painting i never finished
two of these paintings now hang at my grandfather's house. who knows what happened to that apron....
