December Hands on Crabapples.2 -

Summer, 1998.  After returning home from working north in camp, I really needed to draw.  I remember doing this drawing 12 years ago, just like it was yesterday.  In the back of my head I was preparing for a show at The Dawson Creek Art Gallery, www.dcartgallery.ca, with Bryan Haab, Trent Breitkreutz, and James Bishop.  But, I needed to get this out of my system.  Having just returned from university I still had a couple canvases stretched and ready waiting for for me.  I remember studying a photo, making a couple marks, smearing one of them…then realizing what mark I had made…smeared it again.  A couple more marks and I was done. 

I continued to stare at the drawing throughout the week.  Always glancing at it as I went to the bedroom.  At this point my parents house wasn’t completed downstairs, so it sat against the open studs of a skeleton basement.  After that 10 minutes…I never touched it again except to seal it.
