Musical Mountie (Goon III)
12x16inches, acrylic on canvas,
$220.00 framed, $200.00 unframed
but only until Christmas!
I'd been wanting to do this for awhile, don't ask me why, but "Sexy Mountie" and "Musical Mounties" kept recurring in my sketch notes. There may be a couple more traditional pin-up style Mounties there may not, just depends on my mood and interest. I do like the loose and caricature based look of the Goons, feels right for the pieces though it may seem a little different from my usual more sombre realist style. I am starting to enjoy the 12x16 size more, I originally found it awkward as I do usually prefer a square canvas, but I figure by doing a run of pieces in this size I'll end up with a nice grouping if I'm asked to show them anywhere. I may even do a run on some of my favourite superheroes/villains in this style on this size of canvas. Still taking Christmas commissions I figure I can comfortably take orders until the 18th of December or so.
To see my work in Toronto head to Cowbell Bistro (scroll down to see what's there) and my dedicated wall at the Press Club (850 Dundas West) which will change this Monday, so expect a new photo of what is there by Tuesday am.
