À la mémoire de notre ami Bob qui est décédé presque en même temps que Leornard Cohen, à un jour près. Pour moi, tu étais si beau, drôle et intelligent. Tu m'as encouragée sans vraiment rien dire. C'est difficile de croire que tu es déjà parti mais nous nous souviendrons de toi toujours avec un grand sourire. Merci pour tout, Bob. Tu vas nous manquer.
There was an open mic last night, Brya and I really enjoyed listening to this band of 3 musicians. I especially enjoy the woman box drummer... She's got this really cool way to play that drum. Her hair is lovely and she puts her whole body into it. The host was cute and fun, Allan Syrette. Such a funny dude. I go to open mic once every 6 months, I don't do well playing in front of people. However I has a good time with my former student Brya!
J'ai perdu mon amie Pat, elle est décédée le 31 juillet 2016 à l'arch, un centre de soins palliatifs. Une des premières chansons que je lui ai chanté, c'était "l'encre de tes yeux." Elle me manque déjà beaucoup. Tu resteras toujours dans mon coeur ma chère amie adorée.

Hello people, it's been a long time since I've posted! Feels strange to be away so much! Thanks for listening.
Drawing and creating have become a daily occurrence in my life. The challenge for me is how to ally immediate and gestural mark making with a more sustained and deliberate way to make some marks onto my paper. The process of learning how to draw, how to see, how to translate what I see onto paper or onto surfaces whether it is with paint or with charcoal, is a long process for me. It's been 5 years since my first drawing course, already. What is nice is that I can see that I am improving but also that I am not abandoning some of the ways that I liked to draw or to paint from the beginning. Things are just becoming more focussed.
A four minute podcast about Madeleine leaving home. It's been tough but I am handling it.
Painting cows is fun! Trying to keep up with summer postings is hard! I have a hard time talking, the words don't come as easily as I try to formulate my ideas.
Back at the beginning of August, I went to the Gore Street Café to listen to some open mic music. I talk about the summer, some of the stuff I've been doing. (It's cut a bit short...but they're "bits" for a reason! :-)
We're drawing in the fields!!
Continuing from Episode 101.
Follow me as I am talking about my summer and going out to Echo Bay with a friend.
What it is that I am doing in terms of artwork this summer. Thanks for listening and this is my 100th episode. Ya!
I continue talking about my summer and what are some of my ideas for this Super 8 Workshop I will be taking soon.
I could not sleep last night, so I recorded 3 short casts. I went way back to 1987 last night. Things I wanted to do when I was young and that I am starting to do again at 48. Very fun! :-)
