May 8, 2010

The painting commission for the Lobby of the 40 Homewood Ave condo building in Toronto was completed on time, and is now hung up for all to see.

The painting is called "This Is Helena". She's 7 feet by 4 feet, all oils on a traditional gesso and canvas base.

It's good carefully breaking your own rules as you go along. I never used to do commissions, so that's been a challenging one to break, but rewarding. I vowed when I was younger (under pressure from my family to paint 'nice things') that I would never paint flowers. Well, both these personal transgressions have turned out merrily, and have opened doors as well.
