The Tlingit Totem painting has been completed. I will varnish the painting after delivering the St. Kateri icon to Horseshoe Bay tomorrow morning.
When I received the request to paint another 12"x36" of the Tinglit, as a pair to the Beaver Detail, I clarified that I would do the painting from my reference photograph of the totem, rather then doing a copy of the previous painting, and let it guide the way. Because of the realism of my style, the two are actually very similar.
The painting will be delivered to JD Stevenson Gallery this 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.
