This is an 18x24” acrylic painting on standard, 3/4" stretched canvas, done as part two of three for my Visual Foundations class while I attended the Ottawa School of Art in 2020-2021. Derived from a figure study session, one of the figure sketches I made was then cut out and repeated throughout the piece, but used to create an abstract-style landscape, with the centre figure maintained in the sunlight playing vertically across the water, can you see the feminine shape in the water?
As with much of my work, the image wraps the edges of the canvas, allowing for immediate hanging. For clients who prefer their art to be framed and are unsure what direction to go in, I recommend float frames as they still allow for viewers to see the edges of the work.

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.
