Dining Room, Carl’s House, Toronto, by Keith Miller
Grease pencil, 24cm by 17cm
America’s Cup, 1887
Watercolor, 75cm by 55cm
While staying at my brother’s house in Toronto I commandeered his dining room table in order to paint some watercolors. The marine art phase of my career was coming to a close as I got ready to move permanently to Mexico. In the top drawing I’ve indicated very sketchily the watercolor I was working on, shown finished below. I guess my marine art career really was coming to a close, because I still own it.

Weird is good, I say. And this spring, we’re going full-tilt weird (at least botanically speaking). On April 19, we’re throwing open the doors on a brand new art exhibition that embodies the stranger side of plants. Through a partnership with the American Society of Botanical Artists, Weird, Wild, & Wonderful showcases the results of a challenge made to a global community of painters, illustrators, and more: look beyond the simple flower.
The result is both visceral and beautiful. Head through for more info on this bizarrely enticing exhibition. —MN
