Halifax, 2009, 2'x'4', acrylic on panel, Collection C.Garson
This is a commission piece made for a couple of art lovers. A wonderful thing happened when the two sail boats in the foreground fell in love with one another. I am fond of how the Harbour twists around behind the city and pulls your eye back and around. Notice the ocean horizon in the back round, never done that before. I love the fresh windy feeling. as I tried to make the painting sound and smell like the city by the sea. The painting was documented through its various stages and photos were sent to the client so they could watch the progress. They were very happy.
