I'm just starting a new painting on a 30 by 40 inch canvas as you can see in the photo from my studio below. I'm using a Chinese ink brush with liquid acrylic paint (as well as regular brushes) - I like the lines this brush creates - painting with this kind of brush feels different from painting with a regular brush for acrylics. ( Contact me for more info)
I am working on some new paintings of nudes on canvas (see photo) - I should have some new paintings in a few weeks. ( Contact me for more info)

I have completed several new paintings on paper (including nudes) and am just finishing two big nudes on canvas. Among my new paintings on canvas is a large oil painting of tulips, an abstract landscape in acrylic and I might also finish one or two new face paintings in oil that are quite striking and unusual and a result of my experimentations.

February 4th, 2007:
I put 6 new paintings on my home page on Friday. Some are already sold. There was an interesting (at least for me, since I sell most of my paintings online) article in the NY Times paper today ("Youve Seen the E-Mail, Now Buy the Art" By JORI FINKEL Published: February 4, 2007: "Its another sign of the acceleration of the contemporary art market: New works, even in the six-figure range, are sold by digital image alone.").
January 30th, 2007:
I have finally finished the big 3 by 4 feet reclining nude and am really happy with it, it might be one of my best ones yet. I have to wait for it to dry a bit before I can photograph it and then I have to create all the webpages for my new paintings, but I should have the new paintings on my website by the end of this week. A Canadian TV station selected me as a featured artist for their TV series about Canadian artists - they filmed an interview with me and they also filmed me painting this new nude and another new painting on paper. I will try to record the show when it's on TV and put at least part of the video on my website.
