Bull Rider

Acrylic on stretched canvas - 12" x 12" - unframed with finished edges ready to hang. 

Artist's Notes: The Greatest Show on Earth - that's how the Calgary Stampede bills itself. And cowboys from all over the world descend upon Stampede Park in downtown Calgary amid neighbouring towers of glass and steel for a bit of good ol' fashioned wild western sports. Chuck wagon races, bronco busting, calf roping and of course bull riding, as we see here. The rider has just hit the dirt after being tossed by the bull, and the rodeo clown is running in between the two to give the rider time to make his escape. Why do the cowboys do such a dangerous sport? Money and prestige.

Decision Time

12"x 12" acrylic on stretched canvas, finished edges, ready to hang - 2019

Artist Notes: Travel to tropical and especially tourist destinations and the locals have innovative ways to earn money.  One way is to dive from waterfalls into a pool below.  This fellow is considering just when he should do his dive.

Determination - Female Runner Preparing

14" x 18" acrylic on stretched canvas, finished edges, ready to hang - 2004

Artist Notes: I have been a runner all of my adult life, and have an affinity for those who run, especially serious runners. Its about determination - getting out there rain or shine.  Achieving your goals - bettering your Personal Best.  Don't give up...and don't cut corners - stretch before each run. This was an interesting perspective, the pose was from her foot in a stretch before her run.  In her eyes, determination.

Patience - Fly Fishing - Central Ontario

16" x 20" acrylic on stretched canvas, finished edges, ready to hang - 2005

Artist Notes: Fishing is a past-time of many in Canada.  There are thousands of rivers to fish in, and many great fish species to catch.  Here we have a fellow in hip-waders fly fishing in a swifter river in Central Ontario. It's not a quick thing...patience is required.  Whether younger people raised on the internet can gear down long enough to enjoy fly fishing or fishing in general will be interesting to see!

Winner's Circle - Harness Racer - Western Fair Raceway, London, Ontario

16" x 20" acrylic on stretched canvas, finished edges, ready to hang - 2005

Artist Notes: Horses have been a part of Canada from the days of the first European settlements in New France.  Horses powered the economy and moved the people.  As machinery took over those duties, horses shifted into recreation and sport.  Horse racing is still popular with many. Southwestern Ontario has been a Harness-racing (Standard Bred racing) hub for a hundred years.  Lucan was known as Little Lexington (after Lexington, Kentucky, horse racing hub of the US), Ailsa Craig was home to John Campbell, the top harness racer in history, and Arva is a horseman's dream.  Harness racing used to be the only legal form of gambling in Ontario before casinos and lottery tickets arrived, and harness racing horses were bred and trained all over the province creating jobs for thousands.  London's Western Fair Raceway is still in action.
