There are three other paintings that I had started earlier but have been waiting until a) I got a few icon commissions done (commission income does take priority in the end), and now b) I get the condo sold and make the transition to Vancouver Island. I've had to pack up much of my studio supplies in the interim. including these 3 canvases along with my supply of other canvases. There just isn't the room for the condo viewings.
But once I can get past the point of selling the condo, I can make my studio more functional once again, until it comes time to the final pack and load-out. Hopefully soon!
This 12"x36" painting is 75% completed. I just need to further develop the cracks and highlights. I want to keep this one softer overall, similar to the Child/Cub Totem painting.
It is a close-up section of the Beaver Totem by Bill Reid, which is part of the outdoor collection at UBC MOA.
