We are all still here…

For the month of August, 2018, I was ‘Artist in Residence’ at the Shadbolt Center for the Arts, Burnaby BC.  I created a 15 foot by 3 foot painting on five wood panels. The theme was derived from the many reported ghost sightings in the buildings on the Deer Lake site.  It will be on view at the Burnaby Art Gallery-Ceperley house in Feb 2019. Along the top is a panorama of the buildings. Along the bottom are carved eulogy inscriptions from 19th century poets. In the center are fanciful figures, a festival of spirits, from the many festive events that happened at the site during the past century – monks, nuns, dancers, pipers, performers, etc. At present there are more that 100 figures… This took about 1 month –  I may add more.
