  • i can’t really put into words what i feel about these, but it is beautiful.

    • really beautiful colour palette

  • Emily Clanton

    The palette *is* nice, but I really enjoy the odd narratives going on in these paintings.

  • jetsonjoe

    an excellent Canadian painter from Montreal. Problem is that there is so little written or published about this artist other than a few monographs. There needs to be a substantial publication put together about his work, methods, influences, etc. Worthy of having as greatly valued reference for all lovers of art and of wonderful painting.

    And….you really have to see these gems to truly appreciate how special they are. And to see them before they disappear into the owner’s home forever. Why is there no book on this artist??? I do not understand. Please someone make a spectacular book on this artist and his paintings. Amazing in real life…so much more depth and colour….tons of colour everywhere.
