Seeing Red, by Kelly Haydon

The Schmollende. I love the paintings of Paul Gaugin, including The Schmollende pictured on the left. I went as far as to paint a copy of it, but unfortunately did not photograph my reproduction. Then, as I wasn't about to keep an inferior reproduction around, I decided to re-invent the painting. Schmollende means "sulking" in German. The new painting became the opposite of sulking.

To see more Gaugin:

Ani (Feuermann) and I are working hard to put together an exciting show at Sea Star. Her images include dancers and ghosts. Many of mine remind me of waterfalls. Click on EVENTS for details of the show. Hope to see you there!

I was working on a couple of triptychs for an important commission (for my mother) when this painting started to develop. If you are familiar with my work, it is apparent that the style of of this is quite unusual for me. After some weeks and numerous layers of paint, my brain twigged into a connection with a postcard my maternal grandmother, Aino, had sent me when she had started to develop some type of dementia. Her powerful description can be roughly translated:

I watch the waves pounding. This is life. My life.

A crowd gathered Friday night (Dec. 5th) at Sea Star to kick off its Christmas Collective Exhibit. Everyone whooped it up and many bought precious art works for the holiday season. Thanks everyone at Sea Star!

This year's Sooke Fine Arts Show will run from July 25th - Aug. 4th. See the finest works by artists from Vancouver Island and the BC Coastal Islands. For more information, please click on:

I feel honoured to have two of my photographs selected for inclusion in the show. One is Shadows, as seen to the right.

My miniature tableaux are in progress. An enjoyable contrast to my large canvases. Will keep you updated.

After a too-short visit to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, I have much to process. Most importantly, I got to be re-acquainted with my godmother, Mai Onno. It was a thrill to see many of the exquisite, delicious pieces of her work and to visit her studio. She is a hurricane; I wish I could have one tenth of her intensity and passion.

I can't wait to get back in the studio.

I need some more small metal cigar boxes. I will make some sort of tableau in each. This one is just started.
