Flea market view

El Rastro in Madrid is one of Europe’s largest flea markets. Every Sunday morning thousands stroll street after street between¬† displays of memories and treasures randomly scattered on sidewalks or carefully presented on cloth covered tables. For me these are a cornucopia of uncurated still lifes; exactly how I like them.

New work featuring Peterborough

Wet street after heavy rain reflects red, yellow, orange, purple and white lights from traffic and commercial signs. On the left we see a modern four-story building, opposite an older building, both in orange and brown hues. The sky is filled with dark blue clouds, and breaking up, showing light blue and light purple
Transition

Transition – oil on canvas, 30 x 30″, 75 x 75 cm

It was a late afternoon early December and the rain poured down on Peterborough. Just when I stepped outside on Aylmer Street the sky started to clear; the rain would soon be over.

The Aylmer and Hunter intersection features the old and the new. A recent apartment building on the west side across from vintage Sandy’s Variety that bookends Hunter Street’s entertainment stretch, a part of town very much in transition.
