Postcards and New Print

Recently I send off my Edmonton paintings with some modifications to a be printed as postcards. I was not sure how they were going to look, yet when they arrived I liked the bite sized versions. Vivid print also liked them and suggested that I send some their way to sell in the store, since they always are asked if they have Postcards of Edmonton. I am happy to report that about a dozen of them have sold already.

Also I was contacted to do a portrait for a retirement present. After some inquiries and emails I found out he loves the river valley in Edmonton. Perfect!! I like painting it. So I painted some of the landmarks, trees and river. This is the photo of it with out the portrait, I thought it would make for a good print.

MEC 2011 Catalog

Just this last month many of my friends and family have been receiving their catalogs from our favorite outdoorsy store Mountain Equipment Co-op. With in these fantastic pages is a spread of a painting I was asked to do for them. I had for many years worked for MEC while in school for illustration, so it feels cyclical to have now painted for them. It was a great honor to work for them in both instances, and hope to do more in the future with them.

My good friend Leroy Schultz photographed the painting for me too.
