I almost forgot to post this! The Don Valley Art Club is having it’s annual Large & Small Picture Show at Todmorden Mills Museum and Art Centre, 67 Pottery Road Toronto. (http://www.donvalleyartclub.com/) I’ve submitted some drawings – my Tree Dancer 13″ x 19″ series.
Tree Dancer 3 sold, so I’ve dropped the rest of the series with the gallery people. Apparently a couple of artists have sold work and didn’t have replacement work ready, which opens up an opportunity for me to get another piece on the wall.

The artwork runs from sketchy through to wonderful. I saw a lot of light humour along with a staggering array of imaginings and possibilities,

Well I’ve signed up for their online art competition. I am putting myself out there again in a “vote for me” way with http://markjohnson.3rdward.com/
I am always very aware of how my art doesn’t translate well – my cheap old digital camera is not a very good window through which the world sees my work. The work itself is in a state of flux. Each major piece changes radically from the one before as I learn how to see/show my vision.
