Due to a chronic pain condition, the unusually hot climate (my studio is not air-conditioned), and unexpected time constraints of other art projects to which I had committed, I have completed only 8 of the originally proposed 13 paintings in the series. However, all other elements of the original proposal have been completed as planned. I have also expanded the series to include an additional 4 paintings which will bring the final total to 17.

Remaining Paintings to be Completed:

Vermillion Hespeller-Galt (Cambridge)
NephaniRose (Waterloo)
Cayt National Gallery of Canada Pinball (Ottawa-National Gallery)

The Stabby Pizza Girls (London)
Bunny Falls (St. Catherines)
Ana Joli Hammer (Hamilton)
