The commissioned Tlingit Totem painting was requested 3 weeks ago, by the gallery's client who was interested in a pair to the Beaver Totem Detail painting which is also 12"x36". The previous 'North Wolf' painting had sold.
Unfortunately, I've been sick for the past 2+ weeks and still not 100%. But I've been able to make slow progress as strength allows. I had initially hoped to get this new painting done along with a few others before the gallery reopened on Oct. 5th, but with having been out of commission... I can at least get he Tlingit painting completed and possibly start on another canvas.
I trust that I will well enough to deliver the St. Kateri icon to Horseshoe Bay on Wednesday. I am also awaiting news in finalizing the sale of the At Rest painting. It may require another Horseshoe Bay delivery.
Tlingit Wolf Totem
