Work is temporarily postponed due to a physical injury. My shoulder is broken as the result of a nasty fall. Of course, it was the right side which is the side I write and paint with. I can still type, though. I will leave it at that.
I’ve been accepted to participate in something called the Tour Des Arts. It happens in the Eastern Townships which is a wonderful area east of Montreal. It’s supposed to be a very well organized and successful event so I’m very happy to be a part of it.
I recently bought a little house in the area which I will be making my permanent residence before too long. It’s a lovely property and has a great little studio space on the main floor. It will be nice to get out of a basement, where I currently work.
I didn’t know what to expect of the tour when I first applied but have since been told that I could get between 1,000 and 2,000 visitors over the course of the 10 days in July 2019. My little house is very much in the centre of Knowlton and that is likely to contribute to getting big numbers. Yikes!
I wasn’t expecting that but then again, I wasn’t expecting to break my shoulder either.

LooseCanine is free and fearless.
LooseCanine likes to paint animals and thinks of them as having relatable emotions. It thinks of them as symbols of peace, strength, truth, harmony, and chaos.
LooseCanine paints energy and traces its constant flow and stir. It’s about moving paint over a hard surface, making lines and shapes and piling on layers until the work is finished with its maker. It typically uses a combination of artists’ acrylic and latex house paint on hard surfaces. The overall image quality is somewhere between wood-cut printing and random doodling.
While too many to count, it draws from influences that include native American art, wood-cut printing and engraving, stained glass, mosaic, and on occasion, Dr. Seuss illustrations. LooseCanine thinks like a dog, which is not too much. It would rather play.
Its heroes are Lassie, Toto, Rin-Tin-Tin and Old Yeller. - L/C
