New Year, 2016

We are now into the heart of a Quebec winter, lots of snow and cold winds. This weather does not stop the committed. Here is a photograph of British artist, Edward Seago ( 1910-1957) at Camp “W” Anderson Island, Antarctic – January 1957

My first introduction to Seago started with a conversation with artist friend Jean Guthrie. A few years back, she walked past a landscape painting of Seago in a Toronto store window. Jean went in and bought it. Thanks for the introduction as I have been a fan of his work ever since.

I continue to sketch but from the comfort of my car.
