This piece was done after the My Stompin Grounds  book was released, and it was created specifically for a winter-themed show at Harbourfront Centre. It’s about 24″ x 36″ painted on the glass a very old window – so it was done “backwards”… the paint is actually behind the glass.

My Stompin Grounds No More

This is the cover of the children’s book I illustrated for Doubleday back in the mid 90′s. 32 pages of full colour illustrations of 5 Tom Connors lyrics that took me 3 months solid. 20,000 copies were printed and it did well as far as I know. The weird thing was that Tom flat out refused to do ANY promotional stuff and turned down offers from pretty much everyone to appear on television or do print interviews.

As a huge fan of Carole King, I’m looking forward to playing a couple of her great songs at this tribute cabaret at Hugh’s Room in Toronto. I’ll be performing No Easy Way Down and It’s Too Late.
