Fall, already. It's been quiet a hectic summer here just like everywhere around the world but we're fortunate, lots of good things happening each day. I feel so grateful for the the helpful support found in my near circles. Now, I feel ready to raise the bar and discover where this path will lead me.

I'm happy to announce that I'm officially represented by the Miller Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio,
situated in the heart of historic Hyde Park Square. This painting is one of the two pieces I've just finished in time for their upcoming fall group show starting on next October 4: Contemporary Realism Invitational 2013; A Group Show. More informations will be unveiled soon on the gallery's website. I'll post the second painting later during the weekend.
"Theold rail bridge" Oil on masonite, 9 x 12 inches

image was taken among other urbanscapes depicting the surroundings close
to my studio, where we might see many railbridges, beautiful remnants
from the industrial era of Montreal. First version of the painting (2010) was
more painterly than my usual technique, besides I enjoy more the new
2012 palette and the sharper rendering.

Here's a new completed commission I've been working on during summer. I had a great time with this painting as the main subject, a large Coalport "Hong Kong" china bowl, brings a whole story with it about
resilience, the passion of collecting and how we relate to objects through long periods of time. To respect some privacy I cannot reveal so much details which are too personal to my client, but I might add that this wonderful piece has been the origine point of two major china collections.
To the subscribers of this blog:
Last month, Feedburner which is hosted by Google had something broken and without any notice decided to end some of their services. It seems that my subscriber's list is still working but to prevent any kind of loss I decided to move to Feedblitz which is lot more professional. I'm still working on the new settings to eventually finalize the feed transfer. Due to odd Feedburner erratic behaviour, the import of my list is a bit complicated, my apologies!
Please be patient and don't be surprised if ever your receive the new post through both mailing services, it will only be for a while. Next month, feeds should be back to normal and clearly fixed.
