I did not want the year to end without doing this! It’s been trembling on the edge of emergence for a while.
Over the past year or so, while I’ve been creating the work on this blog, I’ve also been working away at a number of other projects. This is the first one I’d like to share with you, a small, beautiful book called “We Are Islands” that I created as a new way to share my work. If you love to hold books in your hands, enjoy the rustle of the pages, like to linger on individual pages whenever you want, this is for you. Presenting:
It is a collection of paintings and poems that began with the colorful volcanic landscapes I passed through on a sailboat voyage through the Azores and Canaries. The paintings that grew out of what I saw were created later, during a period of pause and reflection back in Canada. The poems were created in response to the paintings and became another way of sharing my thoughts. Each pair of paintings and poems responds to and builds on the other, as they do here on my blog.
Now you can buy your own copy in “my” bookstore on Blurb and hold the paintings and poems in your hand. I hope you will enjoy this book!
