If you’re anywhere near Augusta GA tomorrow, at 5:00, you can hear a live interview of Atlanta artist Walter Cumming by the renowned artist Philip Morsberger (Oxford University, Ruskin School of drawing master). Afterwards, you can pop over to the Morris Museum and hear Bobby Jones IV (grandson of the golfer) talk.

Not the snow of horror short story Conrad Aiken’s but the peaceful beauty of Canadian woods in winter. I just finished this pastel for my March 8 show. I never tire of the play of tannin colored Canadian creeks framed in snow.

This pastel is a larger version of a pastel I painted last year from a six day sea kayak trip. We had paddled down the Croatian coast and finished here in Dubrovnik. The mediterranean light was unforgettable.

This scene took my breath away. It’s a new pastel for my March 8 exhibit. It’s a real moment I captured back in December in North Georgia the day before I left for Quebec.. The frost line was at 3, 00o feet, I’ve painted this mountain dozens of time but never saw anything like this.

This morning, outside my Quebec cabin, it’s well below zero F. The water bottle next to my bed froze solid. My laptop took 2 hours to thaw out. (all this by choice, the cabin is well heated but I prefer keeping window window cracked in my bedroom)My sled dog Tanook slept happily curled at my feet on my down bag. Call me “fou” but this is the most content and free I’ve felt in years.
Just finished this pastel of the village l’eglise St. Sauveur here in Quebec. This is also included in my March 8 exhibit, but due to popular demand, it is not for sale to the public until 5:00 .p.m. on March 8, 2018 at Sacred Heart Cultural Center in Augusta, GA. (I’m flattered that people keep buying my paintings as I post them on line, but I gotta have something for the exhibit!)
