Denise, oil on canvas, 74 x 45″

I am still unpacking early works that were left behind when I moved my studio to Mexico, works I did in my Toronto studios, this from my Manning Street studio in an old bottling works factory building.  The cement in the walls was mixed with horse hair and this apparently made the building difficult to tear down although it was torn down after I left, Denise was in it at the time they came with ball and chain to knock it down.  Big factory walls made for big paintings, here I am now back in Canada in a small space doing small painting part of the year, big old buildings torn down and areas gentrified.  I met an artist who had been in Toronto working in the 70s and 80s and we talked of how we had to keep moving further out from Yonge Street, Dupont Street, Spadina, Manning until I ended up in Mexico and he on Vancouver Island, keeping a low overhead, who knew when money would be coming in.
