Thank you Heliconian Club -- Go see the Drawing from Life 2024 Exhibition

Toronto Man

The drawing I'm showing you today is based on a journal sketch.
I thought it would be cool to translate my small 6 x 8 inch
drawing onto canvas, and to draw it in acrylic ink. 

And this morning just before noon, I was finished after a couple
of days of trying to get it down.  The final acrylic ink drawing on
canvas turned out to be a completely different person than my
journal drawing, and that's okay. 

I'm calling him Toronto Man because he's in a trench coat, and
it has been either grey, foggy, or raining here for the past two
months -- so we need our trench coats. 

Thanks to the Heliconian Club for hanging my work right away.
It will be part of the wonderful Drawing From Life exhibition
opening Saturday, February from 2 - 5 p.m.  Admission is free.

Have a loving your life day
