West Coast Impressions - Little 'Penny's Collection
West Coast Impressions comes from a special memory of mine. Having just been to Vancouver Island, we were on the ferry heading for the mainland and the scenes were just incredible. The layers of blue upon blue of into the distance with the water in front. It's just an impression that stays in my heart.
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.
West Coast Impressions 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).
