Over the past couple of weeks I have been working on a series of little 4x4 canvases (32 of them to be exact) and wanted to switch things up a bit. Working small is always nice as I can bring my pochade anywhere to work and though I knew I would be painting canoes, I kept thinking that a group which included a variety of images and subject would not only be interesting to view but also interesting to create. So, I split the canvases up equally and began working, not sure of the direction I would take but figuring it would come to me, which it certainly did. In the end, I ended up with 8 canoes, 8 tipis, 8 animals and 8 wildflowers, which all taps into the work I have been creating for the past few years. It seems like a fitting culmination.
