Here is the most recent oil painting I've done. It is of a place in the Trent Waterway about 2 hrs. north east of Toronto, near Peterborough and the Petroglyphs Provincial Park. It is done with palette knife and even though my wife doesn't think much of it, I'm quite pleased with the results. I just need to keep on doing stuff like this because I know that it is something people here in Ontario are keen of and would probably spend their money to have one at their cottage or at home to remind them of their cottage and/or cottage life. Anyway, enjoy and if you can, make a comment about it, whether good or bad. I understand it will not be everyone's cup of tea. Take my wife for instance. But criticism is always beneficial to the artist.

My friends, this here is my latest watercolour which I did in January. These two are my bosses and this was a gift to the one on the left. De hecho este retrato me quedó con el parecido bastante perfecto por no decir menos. El de la derecha me quedó mejor ejecutado que el de la izquierda y aunque los dientes se vean un poco raros y medio torcidos, es porque así los tiene. Ya me direis que os parece la ejecución del acuarelado. I'm very happy with it but I'd like your opinion with the execution of the watercolour itself.
