Big Windy - Little 'Penny's Collection
There's a little spot along the North shore of Lake Superior that we love to visit. Windy days are our favourite, because the waves and the spray are incredible as they crash upon the rocks and trees.
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.
Big Windy 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).
