This painting is all about Laura’s grandfather’s drafting chair…I had to figure out how to incorporate Laura, and imply their connection, in the piece.

One of my favourite paintings I have ever produced. I tried to capture my father’s vulnerability yet strength at the same time.

“I roamed the countryside searching for answers to things I did not understand. Whythunder last longer than that which causes it, and why immediately on its creation the lightning becomes visible to the eye while thunder requires time to travel.”~Leonardo de Vinci

“Sonnets From The Labrador” and other great news…

Hello art lovers! Here is a quick update with two events of note.

An article was published in a Delaware magazine recently about a collector of my paintings. It is a terrific article which mentions my artwork, along with many paintings being seen in photographs of Patti Hurd’s beautiful home. Here is a link to the article. Enjoy!

The other exciting news is that my painting “David’s Studio, Sunset” is featured on the cover of a new poetry e-book titled “Sonnets From The Labrador” by well-respected poet Samuel Peralta. This book is a collection of poetry inspired by the beautiful artwork of David Blackwood. “Sonnets From The Labrador” e-book will be available via Amazon for the kindle and for download. Here is what the cover looks like, and I have provided a link to Samuel’s blog as well. You can see it here: http://semaphore1.blogspot.ca/

Finally, I will not be posting any more new paintings until my show in November…surprise is a good thing!!! I would like to wait and have the unveiling of the works at the exhibition…but I will post them as soon as the show goes up..until then, thanks for your patience!

Thanks for reading and hope this update finds you in great health!
