I borrowed this phrase from the recently deceased Canadian painter Robert Genn who believed that there is only so much we can learn about how to paint from the many fine instructors and resources available today. The true learning comes from going off on our own and just doing it - Go to your room!

I have had the good fortune to take instruction from outstanding artists in Canada and the USA. I continue to work on my own development ( Going to MY room!) . I share, through this blog and workshops, what I have learned and what others have shared with me.

I created this blog primarily for those attending my workshops to keep in touch and to further share as we grow together. If others are interested in following that would be great.

Enjoy the journey.

New Christmas Selection

Its been a month since my last post.  Cathy and I have been in Ontario having an early Christmas with our families . Sure glad we did - we missed all the difficult weather.

Since my return I have been busy making gallery  "replacement" paintings for those that have not found a home.

So I don't have anything new to offer . I just wanted to make contact before the year's end and to share a few of my  recent acrylic paintings and to wish you and your families all the best that this season brings.

And, of course, happy painting in the New Year.

And all the best from Cathy and Santa


  1. A beautiful set of paintings.

    Merry Christmas to you both.

  2. Beautiful Paintings Brian, you're living the dream.

  3. Thanks. How is winter in Collingwood.


Thanks for your feedback.
