I use the Winsor Newton Satin UV which I really like but sometimes have a bit of streaking with it. Any ideas why?

A couple of quotes that have been hanging around on sticky notes in my studio for a while. Food for thought. 
 
"Often the worst thing to do with what looks like a real philosophical question is to answer it. It can get in the way of a fuller understanding of what the question really is and where it comes from." Barry Stroud.

Or, to paraphrase John Berger "The subject of the picture is not necessarily the same as what it's about".

 As an artist, I think there are things that happen in the studio that would be explained by this.
 
Yes, finding out where and how this meaning is processed will be very interesting.

I love these 8 choices, but so many more as well.
I just took the WHAT I LOVE experience. Take a look at the things that I can't live without.

I still remember the strange sense of disembodiment I had after seeing 'Sans Soleil' when it was first released. Merci Chris Marker for your work.

I hope Professor Higgs has cracked open that bottle of champagne he was alluding to in this interview.

Yesterday afternoon was so beautiful - had to try and capture a bit of it to share.

I'm very touched and honored. I had no idea until a week ago. 
 
I was completely blown away last week to discover that I am included in 'A Dictionary of Canadian Artists' by Colin S MacDonald. Mr. MacDonald dedicated over 50 years to researching and compiling his labour of love, this series of dictionaries on Canadian artists. Many artists can be grateful to him for his work. I'm also very grateful to Christina Sabat for her reviews of my shows which Mr. MacDonald used as reference for my entry in the dictionary. There are several artists I know who are mentioned in the volume I have, and I wonder if they even know about it. Colin S. MacDonald passed away in 2012. Christina, in 1998. The most amazing thing in all this is that I found out about the book last Monday - Remembrance Day.

As a painter, I always love seeing other painters at work.
 
Painter Philip Guston talks about destruction in painting. I find this moving and insightful. http://www.sfmoma.org/explore/multimedia/videos/178
