Meditations are a series of watercolours produced at the end of the summer of 2015. The goal of the work was to provoke feelings of joy, and of wonder. They evoke a range of the artists' influences from Saskatchewan abstract painters - Lorenzo Dupuis, Robert Christie, Jonathan Forrest, Eli Bornstein, Douglas Bentham. These meditations have most recently become the 'ground' for current work in tempera which is repeatedly worked & re-worked as a kind-of ritual acknowledgement of the other artists work, and of a peculiarly Canadian modernism as basis for departure.
