Poppies For Louise (an ode to Lake Louise)

Acrylic, 2011

A love letter to Lake Louise, this is Poppies For Louise: painted in 2011, this piece is inspired by the composition of the Canadian Flag set against the turquoise blue waters of Lake Louise in the Canadian Rockies. The red canoe, features the number nine, the most star worn number in professional hockey and the NHL. An ode to Canada, from sea to sky and sport to nature.
