Art Workshop


              Last weekend, I was attending the workshop with renowned Canadian artist Rod Prouse to learn more about abstract.

“What do I want to paint and how do I want it” or “How we can spin our painting to give a voice in the content beyond representation” – this is was workshop description.

We had 12 very enthusiastic artists to learn something new, with different art experiences and background, but with the same desire about to meet a very good artist and experimenting with the new things.

I was using the acrylic paints and my goal was to paint a very non-objective painting inspired by Nature.












I started to paint another abstract acrylic painting on the second day. I was trying to have the bold colors and gestural strokes and paint not a very objective work. But at the end, I kind of lost my non-objective approaching to paint and started to show the landscape image – tree, sky, water…









Well, I think this painting is not finished yet. May be I will paint on the top of my work, to add more layers and texture and going back to non-objective abstract painting.

Art in the Park, August 1st

Going to participate in Art in the Park one more time. This will be my 13th years to do it, my Booth N29, Bronte’s Waterfront Park 


Exclusively a fine-art show, Oakville’s Art in the Park features about 175 artists from all over the province.  The show is catered – with a fine variety of food for sale (as well as beer and wine).  If you have no other plans, and you would like to see some great art at great direct-from-the artist prices, come on down to the show.  Oakville’s Bronte Village is well worth a visit and browsing an art show on a summer’s day is mellow!

This is preview of one my new painting, The Pines, oil on wood panel, 30″x 30″ 


This is the article in the Beaver Newspaper about the show and they choose one image of my booth from the last year, wow!

I’m very pleased to be part of the Original Canadian Contemporary Art Show hosting by RC Art Gallery in Ankara, Turkey, from October 3 to October 15, 2015.

The show was organized by Colour and Form Society and Rahmi Cogendez Art Gallery, Turkey.  Seven Canadian artists were showing their work.  My landscapes reflects the beautiful Canadian scenery and specially my very favorite place to paint in Oakville, Gairloch Gardens.

The show had a huge success and it was the first time when the Canadian Art was displaying in the Bilkent Art Centre, Ankara, Turkey.  The event was highlighting in the TV news, by reporters, and magazines.

Guest speakers from university’s art department, a color- paint producer chemistry professor to do his speech about how artists choose their colors and color technology. The show was presenting in a very professional way, with musician, best catering, beautiful wooden framing and more.
