I was asked earlier in the year to submit some images of my work and brief descriptions of how I go about making my collages for possible inclusion in a book on drawing techniques. The book's author is renowned UK artist and art blogger Katherine Tyrrell. Obviously I was very flattered to be chosen, as I have been a huge fan of her blog for years, but I didn't want to say anything about it just in case I didn't make the final cut, so I put the whole thing out of my mind.
Now I am very happy to announce that I did indeed make the cut and some of my work found on the pages of an internationally published book! The book, which is called Drawing 365 in the US and Sketching 365 in the UK, will be published on January 1st, 2015, and is now available for pre-order from Amazon and North Light Books. I haven't seen it yet, so it's all a bit of a mystery, but I'm hoping Santa will bring me a few copies for Christmas (hint, hint).
The other bit of good news is that The Brush Off Exhibition has been extended until December 12th, so you have extra time to get down to Avenue Art in Old Montreal to check out all the fabulous art in this gallery show.

Dressage horses have taken over my work table just recently. Here are a couple of new ones:

I wish all my American friends and readers a very happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy!
