This painting evolved through the amazing transfer of photos, emails and texts. This inquiry came from Jennie who lives in North Carolina but who had been born and raised in Saskatchewan. The painting was a gift for her husband, Jason, who had grown up on a farm in southern Saskatchewan.
Recreating the scene in the painting started with old black and white photos that had seen some changes over the years. With the help of his family that still resided near the farm, more photos were taken using drones. By using what used to be and what was there now, I was able to create this painting that brought back memories for Jason and his family.
