CELEBRATE CANADA

February 25th, 2017, I came up with the idea to create a series of paintings about Canada, 150 paintings in predominantly red and white. I had a goal of 100 for July 1st, a lofty goal and one I tackled whole heartedly. I completed 102 by that date, (mainly because I missed counted, lol). I planned on taking it slow after that enjoying summer, but the local art gallery was hoping I would have 150 by Sept 19th!!! I had 137 done by then, and enjoyed my summer as well. I completed all 150 by Oct 27th, 2017. Quite an experience, quite an evolution for myself as well.
