Flying Hats, A Return

Black Hats, White Hats
12x12 inches, acrylic on canvas
$160.00 each
all of the above have been SOLD
I rarely return to old ideas, I use certain symbols over and over again in my work but since I work in series sometimes I get burnt out on an idea and leave it. Yesterday evening I was out with friends and I was thinking about the hats that I painted for "Lost Houses" way back in 2006. Wow, that's a long time ago, I had just moved into a new apartment on Crawford Street and was painting for my annual Cameron House show at the same time amidst the piles of boxes.
I thought about the hats all the way home to the East end and by the time I got home I knew it was time to bring them back. The above are three pieces from 2006, which all sold, I have a few things that I want to add to the pieces this time around, you'll have to wait to see what comes out.
If you'd like to commission some hats for your home, just holler at me at the email below, actually it would be really nice to get an email today to let me know folks are out there reading.
Also don't forget to go to Yumart, 101 Spadina, Suite 210 on Saturday for the reception for the group show that I'm participating in.
