Long Weekend Reflections


Lavender Pearled Buddha Tree



Reflection 1



Reflection 2


Here are a few reflections, written (variant haiku) and photographic from a wonderful long weekend of hiking and photography at Komoka and the Pinery in the company of a most enchanting friend.


Forest breathes
The sound of waves
From a distant sea



Two ripples Intersect
Together briefly
Forever changed



Crocodile
Takes your breath away
Drowned in beauty

Ice-Painting Quartet Display pt. 1





First Story

Intergalactic Observer, the multi-faced being whose gaze sees all, gives rise to Fragmentation, in the end leaving us nothing more than a Spectre.

Ice-Painting Quartet Display pt. 2





Second Story

A beautiful Moon Flower basks in the moonlight. Its fragrance is so intoxicating we find ourselves pulled Behind the Curtain where we dance and revel until the Rusty Sun rises.

Ice-Painting Quartet Display pt. 3






Third Story

A Butterfly flutters here and there. Be careful not to follow too close lest the butterfly is a faerie and you find yourself transported to the enchanted lands where The Pigtailed Girl Plays with Lipstick and the Irish Brawler battles the green faced man.

Ice-Painting Quartet Display pt. 4




Fourth Story

Behold, The Painted Man as he prepares himself for a spiritual journey of Deconstruction, Along the Orange String Road.



It is hard to believe that a month has gone by since I last posted anything on the blog. This past month has been a very eventful one to say the least. What originally began as a month that would see me get to relax and enjoy a two-week family reunion around Easter time, turned into a three-week crash course in putting together my first show.

Needless too say, I survived the process and managed to get my first show off the ground with the help of my two cousins and some close friends. Therefore, a special thank you too all of you for your help.

Shown above and in the succeeding posts are the photographs selected for my series entitled, Ice-Painting Quartet. The show will run from May through June at the Spencer Gallery in the D. B. Weldon library at the University of Western Ontario.
