This painting was juried into the West Kootenay Chapter of the Federation of Canadian Artists show that starts tomorrow at the Kootenay Gallery in Castlegar. If you get a chance to visit, it will be up until the 11th of november.
I am proud to be a part of this group of very talented artists.
This show is well worth the visit.
The theme for this exhibit was "Close to Home" -the Hundred Mile Painting-
My subject was chosen from a visit to Greenwood, BC last summer.
This town is very appealing to me since they have tastefully given a facelift to their main street, with brightly coloured storefronts.
I decided to work this piece with a black gessoed background and apply thick, opaque layers on top.
The skewed reflections in the window was the point of interest for me.
The title is; "Time Is On My Side"
acrylic on canvas.
