Holiday Spectacular on the Hill


'I can never remember whether it snowed for six days and six nights when I was twelve or whether it snowed for twelve days and nights when I was six. ' Child's Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas

This is a small Pen and Wash I created over the past few days for the Richmond Hill Philharmonic Orchestra to use during a reading of A Child's Christmas in Wales at their Holiday Spectacular in just under two weeks time on December 12th. During the evening they will be projecting 45 of my paintings on a large screen at the back of the stage providing a visual accompanyment to their music. The ever popular Ted series will  feature during one piece. The  music series of paintings and a couple of Christmassy ones too will also be projected during various performances. Music and art together. What a great combination!


If you live in the GTA it will be a great evening out and will be sure to put you in a great mood to kick off the Holiday season. Hope to see you there!

Huggable Art!

I am super excited to announce that 4 of my Ted paintings, Comfort-Ted, Tessellate-Ted, Extricate-Ted and Caffeinate-Ted along with Giocoso are now being printed on super soft, cuddly, velveteen pillow covers.  They are SO huggable.


 Click here https://artofwhere.com/artists/ona-kingdon-cspwc-twsa to find out more about them. The link takes you to my store page on 'Art of Where' where you can order directly from them. At the time of ordering you can choose from a selection of colours for the reverse side of the cushion or opt to have the image printed on both sides. The picture above is just to give you some ideas.

I hope they will make awesome holiday gifts for family, friends or as a treat for yourself.

Accelerando!


My inspiration for this Transparent watercolour 'Accelerando' was the music 'Bicycle Race' by Queen. I wanted to try to capture a sense of motion and energy in the painting and thought it would be fun to turn the music on the stave into the velodrome track for the cyclist to race along.

This was my demo painting at the TAVES Consumer Electronics Show 
It was a real race to the finish line, quite literally, to get it finished. 


Another of my paintings 'Animato Assai' which is in the background of the photo above was also featured in the TAVES brochure.


We had many, many visitors over the weekend. If any of you are reading this, it was a pleasure to meet you all.
