Just trying to sort through the clutter in my small condo & studio, preparing the series for their trip to Parksville. I finished and varnished the Wolf Totem painting today and still need to wire and sign 3 other paintings before I can start wrapping them all. Once their are packed up, I can then prepare my studio to accommodate a somewhat large icon board for a special centenary commission which needs to be completed by April 28th. It is 43" x 64", birch plywood with maple framing and weighs more then my easel can handle. All this takes place while also taking care of the Parksville exhibition with:
- a day trip on Monday, March 2nd to hang the show (returning the same day)
- a return trip on Saturday, March 7th for the Opening Reception, but plan to stay overnight rather then having to rush back. With the opportunity, I will likely take the next day to visit totems in the area.
- and then return on March 30th to pack out and return home with the series.
Once the centenary commission is completed, it will be time to continue painting the series in preparation for the exhibition in Port Moody in August/September.
A wonderfully busy time.
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.
