"Charter School"




I have not posted here for some time and thought i might give it a go once again. 
This painting was in a show i am having just now in Calgary at the Ruberto Ostberg Gallery. 
I had 14 watercolours and 19 acrylics completed in time for the opening. 
This is watercolour on Arches CP paper. 22" X 22".

  3. Lively colours which well fit children and their activities.
    I'm pretty sure your paintings displayed at the Ostberg Gallery will have a big success.

  8. I am the proud purchaser of Charter School. My wife saw the painting and it instantly made her happy. She spoke with Ross about how you added the "whimsy" to this particular village and she was sold. It has a prominent spot in our living room and we are so happy with your beautiful work. Thank you for "whimsifying" this beautiful painting.

    1. Thank you Ken! I am so pleased you are the proud owner of "Charter School". Every once in a while, us artists create a painting that makes us dance and this is one of them. It began easily, became an unruly child in the middle stages, which is the most difficult. But after a bit of tussling the life it has began to show up and i loved the end result so much. I've done hundreds of paintings and can honestly say this one stands out for me and is one of my favourites. So glad you and your lovely wife liked it too! :) Thank you.
