I'm making progress with the 36" x 36" Brown Bear commission. I've started on the wood grain and cracking, but have a bit of undertone glazing to complete before getting in the extensive wood grain of this totem (at the Capilano Suspension Bridge park).
The past week had a few hurdles as a self employed artist. The banks just make things so difficult for self-employed persons. And utilities expect their payments on schedule even though art income doesn't come in as initially expected. Fortunately, I was invited to do a Icon Presentation and a 1-day Icon Workshop in Vancouver this past weekend.
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.
