Portrait Hits The Big-Time

This spring Oliver Simon Design did up the loft of actor Callum Keith Rennie and their work is featured in the current issue of Canadian House & Home (September 2013, P.60).  The designers chose one of my funny portraits for the 'art wall'.  They also hung one of my lake landscapes but, wouldn't you know it,  the editor replaced it with text.

This portrait is part of a series I did a few years ago, with made-up faces from people passing by when I was out and about.   Sometimes friends were the starting point, but I didn't tell them; they wouldn't like how they ended up.  This is one of the last of the series; the paintings were getting too much like real people and I lost interest.
