The 101

Acrylic, 2013

I painted this piece after attending the 101st anniversary Calgary Stampede, which was a very special one, being that the Bow River overflowed it's banks and created extreme flooding this year. The stampede riding grounds were very wet and muddy and provided their own abstract patterns for the background of this painting. This painting is about Alberta 'grit' and sold to a client in Edmonton, Alberta.
