I used this photo with myself included to show size of a 54" x 50 " painting, these larger sizes are becoming more frequent in my work,I like how they really add atmosphere or energy to a room.

Sun Rise in Fall III

I recently  photographed this previously sold painting , done around  2002.
  Third in the series or continuance of the Sun Rise in Fall series, I like the idea of the composition  and colours so as is my habit when I like basic elements of a painting I design I often revisit the same idea and translate it again , its interesting to see how it evolves over time or just doing the painting again, its a process I enjoy..

I enjoy revisiting old themes / compositions from my past and see how I would handle them in the present, this has happened often where some paintings have been redone up to three times all unique from each other although starting from the same beginnings Iam sure I have yet to revisit many more compositions Iam fond of.

"The Opening "  I    120516
Oil / Canvas     60 " x  46 "
Skot MacDougall

Owner : J. Mathers   Kanata Ontario

This is the first painting of the Zen Garden series painted for the annual Artwalk festival downtown Sarnia this past June, these are larger paintings then usual ,which offered me a lot of freedom to paint in and helped express to me a powerful expression or feel that I hoped to capture with the presence of the large stone face in the guise of Buddha a bigger then life transcendence into the journey within, I was pleased with the overwhelming response I received at my booth where familiar friends and family came to visit and always a pleasure to meet new friends whom find appreciation or solace in my paintings,  ...perhaps in today's rush and unpredictable world  ,  we may still find  truth and peace  through  natures beauty  and meditative focus on being still, eternal gifts to help us on our journey .

A small painting on masonite done at the beginning of the year , I shown this work at the recent Artwalk festival downtown Sarnia this past June 2-3 in spite of the uncertain weather it worked out very well with many friends and family coming to visit my booth, a very pleasent time thanks to those who came out and enjoyed Sarnia's big cultural arts and music festival .

Abstract Skyscapes....Snipets

Abstract Skyscape  201710
40 x 40 Acrylic Mural Detail
Blue Water Health Sarnia Ont.

Paintings from summer MMX ... To be more accurate these paintings are parts of one large mural, recently done for the Childrens Ward at Bluewater Health, Sarnia Ont. although the main theme and subject was of a more whimsical nature in the portrayal of storks carrying an elephant I thought the sky parts were done "painterly" and were in effect a continuance of the Daydreamscapes series  where imaginative wonderings lead to unknown destinations as the coarse of the painting process....I have several murals completed as to date and feel honored to be part of this noble institution we call Canadian Health care.

 This piece was accepted into Gallery Lambton's Bi-annual Look Show 2010 Art Exhibition,
 [ this is an outside juried art exhibition]
Gallery Lambton,   Sarnia Ontario.
Recieved * Honorable Mention

I entered two small oils into  2010 bi-annual juried show at Gallery Lambton, open to South Ontario and North Michigan artists , its a multi media  entry show , It seems in my opinion the  outside jurors 3 in total were looking for originality in the many entries of work, as noted by the shows content,and reasoning that  the piece entered not accepted was a still life study of a tangerine and peel. see link here.

8 x 10 oil /masonite
c.o. M.Upfold  Sarnia Ont.

Donated to the Derek Upfold benefit auction Dec 2009 Sarnia Ont.

I recently found this small piece behind some larger canvas's that I had forgotten about, evidently left to dry in a safe area.
The theme from 2008 Exhibit" Still and Life" is still current in my work, even older subjects lap over newer ones and some seem to get buried under more pressing ones, I return to favorite subjects often , for many reasons besides the subject or compositions I find it interesting by contrast of time and lessons learned,.. Good knowledge source found in reinterpreting subjects over again thru time, its self revealing on many levels by its context contrast,...also inspired paintings always inspire other paintings, I like the saying...follow the boucing ball.
