A new portrait of my friend Emilie…another Ontario transplant like myself. Birds of a feather:)

New painting hot off the easel! “Mia, Yukon River”, oil on panel, 6″x12″.
It is available at Abbozzo Gallery in Toronto, Ontario.

George Hill was a lovely man who was kind to me when I was visiting Wesleyville, Newfoundland. I was there to research material for a painting exhibition and was staying at David Blackwood’s studio in town.
