Sailing to Africa

Boat to Africa

Boat to Africa

Material:  Acrylics and collage on wrapped canvas.
Status:  A commission which has gone to a beautiful family.

Notes:  This was so much fun to paint!  It is the first time I really got into collage - first with the tea tab as the flag on top of the mast - then the vintage map of Africa for the sail, and finally, the Canadian flag.

This painting was a commission for my dear friend`s sister.  The family is moving to South Africa in the new year, and she wanted to give them a very special gift.  I hope they like it!

2 boys and a dog

the boys and the dog

This painting was a commission (thanks Jill!). The request was to depict 2 small boys and their dog.  One boy was to be on the trike, pulling the boat trailer out of the water, with the younger boy still in the boat, fishing.

It was lots of fun - I LOVE commissions!
