Apache

Apache, oil/panel, 24x48 inches, (click to enlarge)
The winter is dragging on here in Ontario.  I'm think about places that are warm and inspiring to me.  This painting is a reminiscence of the dry dusty hot lands of southern New Mexico.  Sometimes the pinon pines were beaten up by the harsh winds and droughts. This is one of them.

Snow and Palm

Bau-Xi Window, February 2013

Ocean Palms Triptych - Bau-Xi Show 2013
The weather gods dumped a huge snowfall on Toronto the day before my Opening on Feb. 9, 2013. So the contrast I imagined back in Ocotber came to be -  Palms in the snow! (see my post from then at  http://robert-marchessault.blogspot.ca/2012/10/palms.html ).
