Night Prayer [acrylic on canvas, 9”x12”]


Happy Remembrance Day and Veteran’s day.  Tonight my night prayers will include a lot of thanksgiving for the safe homecoming of Captain Matthew Quist from Afghanistan.  I’m also thankful for the men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice to keep Canada free. 

This canvas started out on November 4 as the monochromatic greens over heavy texture [Golden coarse pumice gel].  That surface is a challenge to paint…  acrylics tend to bubble when dragged over this rough stuff. The paint puddles and absorbs and runs and does all kinds of unexpected stuff – fun!  I’m not done this so stay tuned!
