This is a 20x30” acrylic painting on a gallery thick, 1.5" stretched canvas, done as part one of my first semester, final project for my Painting class while I attended the Ottawa School of Art from 2020-2021. Part one of the duo is the painting “Lightbulbs”. The reference image for this piece was shot by me during an unseasonably warm and lovely November day while I waltzed through Ottawa’s Arboretum, my Birkenstock-clad toes exposed to the sun.
As with much of my work, the image wraps the edges of the canvas, making this piece immediately ready for hanging, no framing required.

Cleaning and care instructions:
- Paintings get dusty from time to time, that’s okay! I recommend making a micro-fibre cloth lightly damp with clean water, and very gently running it over the area(s) in question.
- When moving / working with canvas, it’s important to not let the work lean into anything etc. that could puncture, or distort the material.
- When it comes to prints, I highly recommend handling them with clean, or gloved hands, even the oils on our skin can impact the sheen and colouring of prints.
In the unfortunate case of returns and refunds, I will always do my best to ensure my collectors are taken care of! In the very rare circumstance of shipping follies and/or damage to work, I will work with clients directly to create a reasonable solution.
