The road plays a central role in the
way we experience the landscape,
especially as Canadians. It's our
commons, a common ground of
culture and experience as well as
use. A common set of problems.

"drives" at intervals, usually of 50

Montreal to Fairbanks.
In May of 2015 I painted St. John's Newfoundland across to Montreal. Then in July I painted from Prince George
up the Stewart Cassiar to link into my existing series at the Alaska Highway. I'm currently painting the edge of
panels black and getting ready to make more of the booklets that accompany the show. Get There From Here,
the trans-continental version, is now on display at The Reach Museum Gallery in Abbotsford, BC for the fall of
2016 and is booked for public galleries in Portage La Prairie, Swift Current and Medicine Hat in 2017.
June 2014, I painted the southern stretch of the trans-Canada drive, Portage La Prairie to Vancouver, then up
to Prince George. This will link Abbotsford into my "map" of paintings, where the show will be installed in the
summer of 2016. Please check out the blog I kept on the road here.You may have to scroll down to get to the
road painting material, and it will go backwards in time.
