|Doing the Walk, 24x24 oil|
'Doing the Walk' was inspired by my visit to The Royal Winter Fair last November. I've always been captivated by farm life. When I was a child my grandparents had a small farm outside of Toronto. Being a city kid, it thrilled me to visit them. Beside the chickens, cows and the vegetable garden was a pear orchard. The ultimate playground for me was being able to climb the trees to get to the crunchy unripe fruit. I still prefer my pears that way.
