Over the last few years, my admiration and respect for Jimi Oskineegish has grown. Jimi has helped me out with encouragement and also some practical skill. Jimi has welcomed me in his home a number of times now. We had a vision to make a 2 artist diptych painting. Jimi came up with the brilliant idea for each of us to paint one panel and then unite them. We got together and discussed the theme of "man changing into thunderbird" and then we drew the images on the canvas with pencil. I headed home and then we each painted our panel using the color pallette of our choice. We purposely did not discuss color choices, as we wanted to leave that up to spirit. The panel is full of imagery and icons, though Jimi humbly submits that interpretation of the art is up to the beholders imagination.
I am learning how to convert digital JPG images into embroidery files which I can upload to me wifes new sewing machine. Her old machine was 35 years old and I dropped it, so for Valentines we splurged and got a new one. These new machines are absolutely incredible!!!!

There will be a fundraiser to benefit Ken Boyes who has been diagnosed with a brain tumour. Ken's doctors are recommending a drug that is not covered by OHIP The cost is financially devastating to the family. This is a fund raiser to help pay for those drugs. Personal contributions can be made thru a trust fund set up at TD Canada Trust 77-6398234. Your donation to Ken would be greatly appreciated. The fund raising event will be held at the Erin Legion on November 29th 2013
I have donated 50 limited edition prints, one artist proof, one original doodle and one color rendition.
This is why I doodle and paint and why I share what I create. Every time I post something on Facebook, it snuggles into my facebook feed between stories of sorrows and regret, between contoversies and ugly news, disasters and hardships. They snuggle in between stories of strife and unbalance. I would simply UNLIKE and UNFRIEND except then I couldnt have the joy of casting light into darkness or in a much simpler way...making someone smile and feel somehow blessed.
I went out and bought new paintbrushes, new paints and an easel. I have been working on a number of paintings, none of which are finished. I have been playing with a number of ways to interpret my doodles into color.
My friend Ken has been diagnosed with a brain tumor and the doctor is recommending a treatment that is not covered by OHIP. The cost is substantial and friends of the family are holding a fundraising event to help with the burdon.
I have sent this image to my printer, Sofa Communications, and asked for 50 prints. I will be donating all 50 Limted Edition Prints to this cause.
