Figurative Painting and Sculpture
'Persons of Interest' - The Portrait Series
Since my husband and I moved to the beautiful Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada, we have been privileged to meet some truly extraordinary people from here and across Canada. As unassuming as many seem, they represent the finest elements of the Canadian character: friendliness and fair play, tolerance and respect, compromise and compassion. I intend to celebrate both my admiration for these unsung heroes and Canada’s 150th anniversary by painting the portraits of a number of these individuals throughout 2017, Canada’s sesquicentennial year. I am calling the series 'Persons of Interest '.
'Janice & Fern' is the latest addition to the series, following 'Mary' and 'Peter'. 'Mary' was recently awarded second prize in the Federation of Canadian Artists international exhibition 'Painting on the Edge 2017'. New Persons of Interest will be posted as they are completed.
