My newest original painting. IT IS BIG! (48" x 25")
It is a love letter to the city I CHOOSE to live in!
Thanks for being; lovely and loud, crowded and cramped and colourful and creative, worrisome and wonderful.
Toronto. I love you EVEN DESPITE your flaws. Perhaps FOR your flaws!
I hope you guys like this one too......
This one is like a graphic vintage postcard and was really different to work on for me.......see if you like it!
I tried to work in a bunch of Toronto iconography.
The Cinesphere, the beach, some flying rats (oh I mean seagulls) the skyline, a retro streetcar, the city hall, the Toronto sign in Nathan Phillips Square....loads of great stuff!
World. Class. City.
Here is how my painting process went on this one:
Made some mistakes in the painting of this one, but FINALLY I got it right. There was a LOT more push and pull in the colours and the balance for this painting than I normally deal with!
OOPS....but FINALLY here is the painting:
"Toronto", 25" x 48" Acrylic on Canvas
This one will be BOTH a print and postcards for the show season!
BUT YOU REALLY NEEEEEEEED this original!!
