‘Pink Rose’, from ‘Street Kids’, Kelowna BC 2008
‘In 2008 while living in Kelowna, British Columbia, I created a series of 16”x20” / 40cmx50cm pastel or acrylic portraits on paper.
‘Shortly before my small mid-week drawing session I’ld walk to the centre park where wayfaring youth hung out. There I’ld find & proposition a fresh new model.
‘It was always win/win; the model leaving with some cash, artists with a portrait, and everyone with new friendship, understanding and acceptance from the day.’
