An 8x10 of an overcast tugboat from the other day.

A bit of an overcast one of downtown Toronto skyline from the other day. 8x10 oil.

An 8x10 of a backhoe from this week.

An 8x10 still life of a copper kettle and some apples.

Another 8x10 of the tanker "Canadian Miner" from the other day.

An 8x10 of the tanker "Canadian Ranger".

A quick 6x8 of "Ruby", a Golden Retriever currently boarding with me! I plan to use this and a few photos to make a larger painting soon.

A work in progress of a Queens Quay from the other day. Most done on site, the rest at home. 8x16 oil.

Here's an 8x10 jobbie from today of my Martin D-18 knock off guitar. (ever waiting to be played!)

Que complicado es, hacer ver que las cosas difíciles parezcan estar hechas con una cierta facilidad y sencillez.
Un saludo.

Hey Michael, Really nice feel to the Ruby painting! Great abstract composition, and I love the thin warm treatment with the confident brushstrokes on top. Looking forward to seeing the larger piece.

Hi Mike

Great stuff as always!

I wanted to tell you that my short Weenie Wagon Woe has been accepted for competition in the Melbourne Animated film festival!! In a special screening called Midnight Weirdness, which seems only appropriate.

Lunch soon?

Michael Pieczonka said...

Hey thanks Willy, congrats on your movie.

Michael Pieczonka said...

Thnks Will, and d'Morais, and Randall. Randall, that's quite a compliment.. I'm a huge fan of W Wray's work!

Michael Pieczonka said...

Hey thanks for having a look Eric. Some tasty desert pieces on your blog too.

Bruce Sherman said...

Love your batch of recentpainterly... sensitive sketches Michael!

I am especially "sweet on"... the tanker pair... painted... ever so beautifully... down I painted down Cherry Street way.... many times. Brought back a flood of many wonderfully quiet Toronto waterfront moments!

Enjoyed my visit!

Good Painting!
Warmest regards,
Bruce

Michael Pieczonka said...

Thanks a lot Marco, dogs are great subjects (when they stay still).

Michael Pieczonka said...

Thanks Bruce. Cherry St. is probably one place in Toronto that hasn't changed much over the years. The ships down there practically paint themselves!

JMahorney said...

What an amazing set of beauties! I don't even know where to start so I'll simply say that I just love them :)
