Admiration - Little 'Penny's Collection
Admiration is a little snowy scene. Sometimes we look at others a way off and admire them or their circumstances, sometimes wishing for something different. The secret of a happy life is to bloom where you're planted and know that we all face challenges.
Little ‘Penny’s are a collection of 8x8’s painted in Autumn of 2022. Each one has an authentic Canadian penny adhered to the right side. Adding the pennies was a way to add something special and fun to this project. Because my name is Penny, I was always a collector of pennies and this was another way to share a piece of myself in this most recent work, as well as a way to remind people that as Canadians, we live in a very special place in the world.
Admiration was painted in 2022 and is an 8x8" alcohol ink original mounted on a birch panel. It is sealed with a varnish and UV protectant, (but alcohol inks should never be placed in direct sunlight).
