Now that I've completed the recent commissions for icons, a totem painting which I had started last year, is back on the easel. I have a number of canvases waiting in the wings, including a 4ft x 4ft... I'm drawn to the 4x4, remembering how much I enjoyed painting the 3ft x 3ft Brown Bear, but it needs to be just the right image with a high resolution for adequate information for the detailing in such a large canvas.
In the meantime, the wolf totem which had been started, will be a good way to get back on the bike so to speak.
But I started feeling cold symptoms on the same day that I delivered the last icon commission on Monday, and have had recurring stabbing sinus headaches since, and not feeling great at all. But the canvas is patiently waiting.
Andre Prevost, began his work in theatre in the late 70s after completing his studies at the Banff School of Fine Arts, and in his iconography in 1980, and having a large body of work in each. He has since been based in Western Canada; North Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, and now back on the West Coast.
