a moment like no other

A memorable moment of beautiful sportsmanship when Naomi Osaka supported Coco Gauff after her loss in their Third Round match in this year’s US Open Tennis Championship. In our time of universal uncertainty this was truly an uplifting moment and shows the best of what we can all aspire to. Thank you Naomi.

Remembering Douglas

Douglas Campbell, King Lear, Bard on the Beach, 1994

My painting of the late, great Canadian actor was painted this summer with much love as a gift for all at Bard in honour of the 30th Anniversary Season and to say thank you for thirty glorious years of theatre at its very best.

This landscape painted over thirty years ago has stood the test of time I think.
Let’s all work to make sure our planet does the same.

steps of hope


 
On leaving the evening service at the mosque on West 8th Avenue in Vancouver last Friday, a service that I attended with many hundreds from the community including the Minister of Defense, the Mayor, and the High Commissioners of New Zealand and the United States, on the steps leading to the entrance had been left many bouquets, a New Zealand flag 🇳🇿 and lit candles, all of which gave us a moment of hope and light as we left on an evening that was dark with so much sorrow and despair.

This painting is my way of expressing my heartfelt condolences and deepest sympathy to all those families and friends who have lost loved ones last week both in Christchurch and from Ethiopian Airlines Flight ET302. May they all rest in peace.

The request:

“…unicorns and ballerinas and elephants and rainbows and fairy tales etc of course in pinks and purples and glittery colours…”
