dready deck house life



                       dready art 'deck house life' - 72x24 - original commission on canvas

this group of houses were inspired by the 'cottages' and boat houses north of toronto, because the original developer was canadian ... people go to the lakes, north of the city, pretty much every weekend, sun, rain or snow, or all of the above, to; muskoka, huntsville, lakefield, barrie, parry sound, tiny beaches ...

they call it 'cottage country'

I've heard someone call their 14,000 sq foot house by the lake the 'cottage' ...

some areas have big cottages, some small, some are carefully planned ... Georgian Bay for example is closely guarded from mega mansions, planning allows only one 'kitchen' and house/cabin/cottage sizes are limited as are toilets and other structures ...

it's pretty lovely, it's not british columbia dramatic lovely, but it is ontario lovely; gently rolling landscapes, farmsteads and lotsa lotsa lakes.

i was a small boy when I first went to 'cottage country'; a business associate of my grandfather's, a man to whom he sold pimento/allspice I think, had invited us to canada and to his cottage, and we went - in my memory it was called 'loon lake', which exists, but I wouldn't swear that was true - the water was cold, colder than this little jamaican yute had ever experienced - I watched a loon dive in chasing fish ...

canada, eh ...






dready a 2 turtle race



                   one of two dready turtle designs for Rotary 'turtle races' - printed 3m laminate on board

for 4 years now I have done turtles for the rotary fund raising turtle races ... and every year am away when the event happens ...

this is one of two I did for this year's event, the 'sponsor' is an avid fly fisherman and asked if I could use the 'bone fishing' dready for his turtle.

race on ...

evoluting dready



                             dready art 'ferrari daytona - red' - 49x16 - image

evoluting is a word that i coined a few years ago - can't say I invented it, but i used it, having never seen it before - i needed it because evolution seems to me to be a process which 'happens', something evolves due to stimuli; but what I wanted was an evolution that was actively happening to someone, they weren't evolving but someone/something was evolving them forcibly, they were actively being evolved ... and so, evoluting dready (and because it was a better word than 'changing'.)

so below us somewhere is a dready that is called 'miami vice-ish' ... same car different story ...

better red than dead ...
