Tom Thomson Was A Weatherman with Phil the Forecaster Chadwick

"Join artist and meteorologist Phil "the Forecaster" Chadwick in a perspective- changing look at the genius of Tom Thomson as an artist through the weather and inspired him...."
If there ever was a year to study the art of Tom Thomson, this is it, a hundred years after his passing. Canada lost a gifted artist way too soon. What might he have produced?
A chance inquiry from a friend at Killbear Provincial Park has grown into a tour of other Provincial Parks in late August... with maybe more on the way. I like to make every trip away from the lake count. Each presentation will be a bit different depending upon the interests of the group. Here is what I know so far..
Killbear Provincial Park Tuesday August 29th 8 pm
Algonquin Wednesday August 30th, 8 pm
Arrowhead Thursday August 31st, 8 pm
Bonnechere Friday September 1st, 8 pm
I will update this list and times...I arrive early and stay late to answer any questions. I've even been known to talk about the weather...

Leslie Allen - A fantastic Colorado artist with Ontario Roots

Leslie Allen is a terrific and very prolific artist - she is up to 3000 works - and a very good friend. She wrote the following article about me for her newsletter.

I continue to paint up a storm... just posted a freezing rain sky this morning - #1906  "Sunrise Freezing Rain Deformation Zone" 
My art is appearing on coffee cups and shower curtains around the Globe... as created through Life is too much fun and I am not making this stuff up ...
