Branch & West II
It's a big'un, folks! I wanted to make a BIG showstopper painting to help Francesca Burretti-Bullen promote and beautify her boutique space Outside The Shape in Marda Loop, Calgary. So, I pulled an old painting down off the studio wall (I was never happy with it anyway) and I painted right overtop! The lovely and talented Jennifer at Airdrie's Branch & West collaborated with me to design the arrangement for this painting and the process was so much fun. It was an abitious project to finish in under just one week, but I did it! Making this painting got me thinking about working on larger canvases more often and the myriad of ways I could design and stage my own reference photos for future work. Oh, so many paintings to look forward to. "Branch & West II" is a whopping 60x48" acrylic on canvas and is wired and ready to hang. It is currently in residence at Outside The Shape in Calgary.
