But sparrows still die.

These painting, for me, illustrate the big question, as old as Job.  The one left unanswered: “Why”.

I’ve had a little time off between one job ending and a move back to Toronto to start new work.
This time has been painting time.

I always fancied myself a cubits and some of my past paintings have leaned in that direction, but I’m trying to just let stuff come out the way it wants to come out, with no expectations.  It’s not nearly as cubist as I’d hoped it would be, but it feels right anyway.  At least for now.  I’m basing all my paintings right now on photos friends have uploaded to facebook that have caught my eye.

Here’s what I’ve done so far, along with the photos they’re based on:
