Lake Fever-Canadian Style - 2018
2017 was a bad year with the loss of Canada's iconic singer, songwriter and poet, Gord Downie after a courageous battle with Glioblastoma. In addition to Gord's death, it was also a personal tragedy losing a family member one week prior to Gord's death of the same Cancer. She was only 31 years old.
As a tribute to Canadian Music, the land I call home and loved ones, this compilation of images come together on an 11x14" Gallery Wrapped Canvas with Oil and mixing mediums. The base of the painting started with a photograph of the sun's reflection shining on Lake Erie with a Canadian Flag waving proudly. A sketch of Gord was re-created and sketched onto the canvas as well.

Final Touches-February 25, 2018
Final touches to the canvas were completed with various Tragically Hip song titles rippling in the waves. So small but so significant to the completed painting
