"Oh Canada" - print
Taking me over 52-hours to complete, this artwork was drawn on-location at the Grandview Lake Side Resort in Ontario, Canada. This artwork was drawn as a tribute to the areas known as "cottage country" in Canada. Cottage country is truly a Canadian treasure and is enjoyed by many Canadians and Americans for its lake and cottage style living.
My family currently vacations in the heart of cottage country at the Grandview Lake Side Resort (Grandview) near Orillia, for the same 2-weeks every year. Canada has played a large part of Dawn's (wife) family history for over 80-years. Her grandparents took her father to Grandview every summer when he was a young boy. Then Dawn's father continued the tradition and took his family as his family grew. Now Dawn has introduced me to Grandview a few years ago and I can easily say it is one of my favorite places on earth.
I spent each day of my two-week vacation at Grandview finding different shade trees to draw underneath and drawing my surroundings. Drawing and getting lost inside of my research and artwork is like mediation to me." Its true. I love to draw. I could do it all day and night, and sometimes have. Look close, do you see what I see?
A video explanation of the "Visual Biography®" COMING SOON!
"Personalization" is when Chris HIDES/ADDS names, words, or phrases INSIDE of one of his existing artworks! It looks like part of the original artwork! ($20). Up to 5-words. People rave about "Personalization" at my art shows because it makes the artwork more of an original. It literally ties a person, family, or organization INTO the artwork. They become a part of the overall "Visual Biography®" of the subject. Add your name, or all the family members names, or "Happy Birthday Susan!", or "Congrats Billy, love Mom!"....anything you need to make it special to you.
Matted artwork is ready to display, or gift! If you CHECK "Add a Black Matte" (+$15) then your 8"x10" artwork will arrive already affixed to beautiful 11"x14" Black Matte. Matted artwork also includes a sturdy backing board, all inside a crystal clear sleeve. MATTED ARTWORK IS READY TO DISPLAY OR GIFT!
If you choose NOT to "Add a Black Matte", your artwork will arrive as just a print (8"x10"). You will need to purchase and matte your own artwork.
