ode to O'Toole























acrylic 12 x 12 inches
I'm a huge fan of Michael O'Toole's and of all the paintings I've done with the red foliage, I think this one is most like his. ( Certainly not in the same ball park!). People also say some of my work reflects that of Robert Glenn or the Group Of Seven...I take that as a huge compliment. Tons of Canadian art is influenced by the Group Of Seven including Robert Glenn. I don't try to copy anyones style but one can't  help but be influenced by the artists you admire. My studio is surrounded by photos of art I love...it inspires and motivates me.
