SELF PORTRAIT
ACRYLIC ON STRETCHED CANVAS
20″ x 40″

Some Day is a personal piece created specifically for the Burlington Art Centre, Verge Exhibit. This image was painted live from Andrea’s reflection in a mirror on site during the six week show. The figures in the background are visitors who stood to watch or sat still to be added into the image. The two children at the base of the mirror are Andrea’s daughters making the piece more sentimental to her. The title Some Day has been painted in the bottom right hand corner on a sticky note. It is a reminder, a goal and wish to become a recognized fine artist some day.

This painting was a surprise thank-you to the Trapper from the grateful hunters who visit his camp every year. Andrea was invited to the camp for a week to plan this piece. The final painting brought tears to the eyes of a roomful of otherwise tough men when it was presented. The largest watercolour Andrea painted took some additional time and cost extra to frame but she was assured the wait and unforeseen expense was well worth it.

Going for a walk along Forty Mile Creek with the friendliest, loving dog in Grimsby was a real treat when it came to gathering reference for this custom art piece.

Graduation is a time of celebration. It’s a time to remember. A painted portrait captures an essence of your rapidly growing loved one in a different way than a photograph does. Andrea prefers to work from her own sketches and photographic reference but will create a painting based on client supplied reference material as well.

No matter what the occupation,  distinguished people of all types deserve to be captured in a way that they’d be proud to show in a hall, office, church or even at home. A commissioned portrait can make a great gift, a special thank you or simply honour someone deserving of recognition.

An intuitive approach was taken to create these images. Andrea’s paintings have the reputation for taking weeks if not months to complete. She wanted to create a series of paintings that wouldn’t be as time consuming and would appeal to a wide audience. These pieces are more decorative than her usual work, although still narrative. Each portrait is unique and takes on a life of it’s own. Andrea considered different colour schemes including the trends by this year’s interior designers.
