9 month report———————-sep5-june5
Finding out I’d been awarded a dev grant and recognized as an ont working artist caught me off guard having already assumed I wasnt getting it and comited to spend a month in ottawa wityh my sisters 3 kids. I quickly jiggled my travel plans and crisscrossed ontario 3 times between ottawa and windsor stoping in everywhere i knew different cool girls and hanging out and impressing them with my idea to make them the attack of the 700 foot women squashing their own home towns. everybuddy thought it was great and most of them said dont make it too trans101 or weird fetishy, do it kinda like nan goldin 1980, but at least 1 girl wanted me to boost her fantastic porn and some other girls had other agendas,
YOU CAN READ ALL ABOUT THAT IN THE TRANSONTARIO ROAD ATLAS.
SKETCHES AND DRAWING FROM MY XPROVINCE ADVENTURES ARE IN AGALLERY HERE.
framed sketch book pages in catalog.
Before Winter set in I built an enormous 7×7 foot easel and set to converting my houses attic in to a painting studio. (the giant easel doesnt fit in the studio but workign around that is another story)

the 7×7 foot painting of Mellos ottawa took a month to do. The accompanying short story about a chance meeting between 6 year old me and 3 1982 new wave byward market streetwalkers delighted hundreds shared across social media.

over the early spring I painted the diverse ladies of kenzington market and dundas square, in time for Thaw I spent anoher whole month painting the entire Windsor Border Cities, with detroit as a backdrop and Award winning Windsor Author Casey Plett in repose in the Detroit River. on JUNE 1,2 the MISS AMBASSADOR BRIDGE paining was show to thousands at the Walkerville Willstead Manor Art Park. sold several $25 posters of Miss Ambassador.

With several month+ Long paintings and having been busy taking multiple freelance gigs for several  books {Little fish arsenal pulp, We’re Still Here-Stackeddeck,…} and  cider company, renovating my newish house home studio, having a few legthilly inconvenient myo osteo health problems, and creating posters prints and framed knick knacks for my web store and vendor opertunities in May I saw myyself falling very short of my targeted baker’s dozen of pieces for a show. multitasking as always, I decides to switch my attention to paintings under 4 feet in any measurement as these would also be way much more commercially viable, also they can be moved pre stretched easier. between may and july I completed 3 Oils of STRATFORD, DUNDURN, and BLOORDALE. The Painting of STRATFORD is on display july21st ongoing at BIBLIOASIS BOOKS.
