Reworking "Evening Story"

The painting's composition seemed wrong to me - the focal point was too centred, and there wasn't anything I could do with the empty left side. So I decided to cut the painting down and re-stretch it. A little drastic, but I couldn't figure how else to correct the problem.

Field of Dandelions

30 x 24 oil on canvas
We visited an art centre in the country outside Calgary ... the views of the big sky, valley and mountains were just amazing. The fields were covered in dandelions, and the girls picked bouquets of them and stuck them in their baby sister's hat.

20 x 24 inches, oil on canvas
This is the second portrait I've done for this family. The boy's mother wanted the portrait to show the back view of her son, but she also wanted the painting to show something of what he looks like from the front. The solution was to paint his reflection in the glass.
