Painters House 2010
Original: 24″ x 30″ acrylic on canvas, SOLD
I grew up on the beach at Point Holmes in Comox, B.C. and over the years became very attached to this location. Eventually I had to leave my childhood home but afterwards I would often have dreams about the magical place where I grew up. In one dream my house had been moved to the very edge of the beach ready to be shipped away. “Painters House” was inspired by that dream. I painted it in a patchwork of colour, kind of like a palette, to be a metaphor for who I have become now – an artist. It also means that as I’ve grown up, I have become my own person.
