Each time I've been working on these portrait projects I tend to work 3 pieces at a time. Now that I'm so close to the finish line I am excited and nervous and happy and sad. There are a couple of portraits that I'll be 'tweaking' just a bit but otherwise I'm so grateful to have been able to work on this series. Especially this year.
I'm thinking of a couple of smaller projects for the new year...one possibly being an 18-7x14 inch piece author project (I think) and the other consisting of 14-8x10 canvases though I'm not exactly sure of the subject (a good friend suggested something to do with the suggragette movement in Canada). I've also been thinking of a third consisting of larger canvases may focus on Canadian women who have made a difference (both present and past ) and will possibly be called 'Extraordinary Women' (also subject to change). I am asking for ideas as I do love collaborating with others in this way. I think any of these will incorporate quotes, like the 52 WEEKS::Heroes series that was the beginning of all of this portrait painting. I may be biting off a little too much. These might even last for the next couple of years. We'll see.
