Top of the World - Little 'Penny's Collection
I am continually in awe of the Eastern White Pines that grow here in Northern Ontario. They grow high above the other trees, making normal, already huge trees look small beside them. They truly sit on Top of the World.
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.
Top of the World 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).
