more work in auction

life goes on / things happen in spite of ourselves / not that it benefits me in any direct immediate way, other than the works establish a continuing provenance, found out after the fact that a whole wackload of my works were up for auction at Waddington’s on January 25th of this year / hopefully the new owners will check us out online and find even more works they like and can’t live without and contact us….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

a painting of deep snow

sometime posting a work online brings out a conversation which speaks a lot about not only the work itself, but how people are seeing / responding / thinking / liking or disliking it / in this way reposting it here the conversation becomes part of the seeing the painting itself

Lorraine Roy Oh just beautiful. I am there.

Micheal Zarowsky thanks Lorraine, toss in the deep resonating rat-tat-tat of a pileated and the fullness is complete

Ed Reliuga ‘ The sound my heart makes when it is truly excited…enraptured…caught up in a moment of Winter’s charm ‘.

Micheal Zarowsky why thank you Ed, not quite like paris, where nomatter where you stand, there is a masterpiece just waiting to be painted, but i do find, not without effort, i have a knack for bringing out what is magical about winter…

Ed Reliuga I was truly taken aback. This piece truly captured EVERYTHING about woods in winter except for the frosty breath and frozen toes. From deadfalls to the struggling young pines: brilliant green against slumbering background.

Beautiful Michael. “A knack” ….. Indeed. Though I suspect sorcery

Janet Bloomer Roberson Micheal Zarowsky Yes you do!

Ed Reliuga Something else grabbed my eye….violet hues. I daresay…seldom seen or encountered in such deep richness. Nice.

Micheal Zarowsky Ed Reliuga hmmmmm…i do tend to eat a bit of the snow whereever i am, try to discern if the snow, much like wine, is of a ‘good year’ or not; actually it is fun to go deep into the tangled chaos that the forest is in the winter, and try to express that feeling / sensation of total immersion,

Diane Cantin Sivret AMAZING; very beautiful Micheal.

Micheal Zarowsky thanks Diane, winter and watercolour both start with the letter ‘wuh’ ( idea in part stolen from the movie called ‘a fish called wanda’ )

Diane Cantin Sivret Micheal Zarowsky You really have a lot of talent; all the topics you choose are all incredibly successful. Excuse my English who is not very good 😉

Micheal Zarowsky Diane Cantin Sivret thanks Diane, we simply paint what we like paint our experience,

Elected a Member of Ontario Society of Artists

 

 

woke up to an email from Kim Atkins, Chair of the New Members Committee, letting me know, that at the general meeting this past Saturday i was elected a member of the Ontario Society of Artists.

Ontario Society of Artists
The Arts and Letters Club
14 Elm Street -3rd Floor
Toronto, Ontario
22 January 2018

Dear Michael ;

On behalf of all the members of the Ontario Society of Artists, I am very happy to congratulate you on being elected as a new member at the General Meeting yesterday.
The OSA has a long tradition, which began with its founding in 1872. We are Canada’s oldest continuously operating artists’ society. The OSA was instrumental in establishing major art institutions, such as the Royal Canadian Academy of the Arts, the National Gallery of Canada, the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Ontario College of Art. Among its offshoots are the Canadian Society of Graphic Art, the Sculptors’ Society of Canada and the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour.

In 2018 we are a province-wide professional organization with over 260 members working in a wide range of media from many backgrounds and cultures. We know that your accomplishments will enrich and strengthen the OSA..

As you know, an organization’s strength rests with its participating members. I would like to add your name to our list of volunteers.
We hope that you will look at the list of volunteer activities to see where you can support our Society. Please let me know where……….

Micheal Zarowsky am really impressed at all the other organizations that spun off from the OSA.

Jan Delville Overdue and well deserved. Keep shining, Micheal!

Micheal Zarowsky Thanks Jan, overdue, you mean like waiting bills? just kidding….any overdue is my lagging behind in applying – it is only in the last couple of years that i have decided to apply to all these societies & thankfully the members have seen fit to include me in among themselves as a member /

Jan Delville I knew you deferred the applications like, forever. Thing is, you are so worthy of membership in these groups. I hope more folk will now know your wonderful work for your coming into the ‘fold’. XO

Micheal Zarowsky Jan Delville another way of saying i sold out, that it?

Donna Nichol So deserved!

Micheal Zarowsky thanks Donna, glad you think so.

Wendy Bermingham Congratulations!!!

Micheal Zarowsky thanks Wendy. as i said to Sheila, always late to the party is me….

Piero Catalfo What took so long? Recognition is well overdue.

Micheal Zarowsky i never applied anywhere / same as i never had and still don’t have the time to go n find a gallery that could sell my work and i have the same 24 hours that everyone else has so it is not that Marx Bros thingy of me not wanting to belong to any club that would have me as a member / i just paint slow and it takes all day long to make progress on any piece and so i spend all day long painting and then it is dark so i paint further into the night as there is nowhere to go other than the 24 hour metro and then i crash and get up the next morning and start all over again…..anyways glad i applied and happy enough artists who are members of the OSA liked my work enough to offer me membership. but thank you Piero…..

Gordon Leverton Micheal Zarowsky love hearing about the process 😉 seriously congrats, now you get to pay a yearly fee to have those letters behind your name!

Gordon Leverton thanks Gord, you’re right have to get that sent off / process? just plod along / when i get stuck i go sit on the can and try n think it thru or hop in the truck n go for a drive putting physical distance between me n the ongoing piece n work out how to proceed / where to take the idea next

Vera Bobson Congrats🙂

thanks Vera, have not forgot you mentioned the Royal Water Colour Society in England

Michael Dufresne Congratulations my dear friend. And I know Wendy shares in this recognition. Love you both.

Micheal Zarowsky for you…. we can work things out……are you doing cabbagetown this year?

Elva Hook Micheal Zarowsky Cabbagetown!!! No way!

Micheal Zarowsky Elva Hook so what will you replace it with?

Cathy Groulx Congratulations on your acceptance into the OSA. We are a great group to belong to, with a fabulous history.

Micheal Zarowsky thanks Cathy, so i am finding this out; you obviously had a hand in my getting in so a big thanks to you (and everyone else of course)

Cathy Groulx When we were walking around looking at all the submissions, I only heard positivity about your pieces. I am looking forward to hearing who all were accepted in the final results!

Micheal Zarowsky Cathy Groulx thanks for the wonderful feedback; picked up some unsold pieces from the arta gallery late yesterday and the gals there said my work was the big hit in the gallery over the last 2 months; people would just stop and stare and stare at my work they had up on their walls

Lesley McLaughlin Been a while, Micheal (mea culpa), but jumping in to say Congratulations. *Well* deserved!

Micheal Zarowsky thank You Lesley, i also find that anything i post does not reach everyone on friend list / not complaining as apparently this is true for everybody so it is not me being singled out or anything

Marilyn Woolston Beautiful Micheal

Micheal Zarowsky thanks Marilyn, it is fun times all round with all this snow….

Kate Kitchen Lovely and mysterious blue shadows

Micheal Zarowsky thanks Kate, hopefully the strength of the day comes thru in the shadows / light

Kate Kitchen Absolutely it does with the light and warmth of the sun contrasting with the darker young trees. Also, with the strength comes a suggestion of softer, melting snow. It is a powerful but subtle painting.

Alan Doner On cold and sunny winter days there is no place I’d rather be than wandering around a snow laden forest. I love your paintings. Every time I see one of your winter scenes I’m struck by how much there is to look at. There are just so many interesting places to look it keeps my eyes moving. One day I’ll have one on my wall.

Micheal Zarowsky thanks Alan, absolutely right; nomatter where you, for me anyways, stop and stand n look around it is mesmerizing…something i never quite get used to seeing or being inside of

Alan Doner Micheal Zarowsky Ya I do a lot of hiking but I do quite a bit of just standing and observing and just soak in the nature, what a nature nut,lol.

Micheal Zarowsky here is where i lose a lot of people; that standing looking around i lose my edges feel a oneness with and in the forest / it is alive and me with it / okay so i am crazy but…..

Tania Kasperska You always try to keep the expresive nature of the landscape the images that inspire fascination and stimulate the emotions of the recipient ,which is the merit of your great talent artistiic ,excellent work…!!!

Micheal Zarowsky thanks Tania, okay; (at the same time while we are grateful others who see our work like what we do, cause while we are aware others may / will see our work, we are painting our experience, what we found magical, what drove us crazy yet worth the struggle to try n express thru paint….)

Happy New Year

HAPPY NEW YEAR
may 2018 be a year of fulfilled possibilities for everyone
health happiness imagination prosperity chocolate oodles of fun n adventure

 

ready to start the run all over again……
