Artist and children’s book designer Richard Cole has been busy this summer — painting people close to him, and journeying into landscape through acrylics. The featured image is a new painting: Prairie, 2014 — and its reminiscent of the one he used for the last page of our new book, The Girl Who Writes. It’s a stunning page — one of my all-time-favourites. It makes me want to leap out of my chair — and then sit down again and write.
He has also been making movies of the evolution of his paintings. See one here www.colestudio.ca.
But that’s not all — he has revived and improved our beloved Boy Who Paints site (see it here at http://boywhopaints.ca/wp/) and is painting feverishly to get ready for his fall and winter shows.
