Profile – Throwback Thursday

Profile 24″x18″ acrylic

Today’s image is an example for an exercise I used to do with my students. They would begin by drawing an outline of their profile. Then they would fill the inside of the profile with an image of their choosing. The area around the head would be filled in with an alternate image, that could either compliment or contrast with what was in their head.

You never know where she is going to show up. My daily travels used to take me through rural New Brunswick. One of those routes would take me by this mid-20th century sanatorium. There In front of the building in glowing marble stood Queen Victoria (She sort of seemed out-of-place). All around were woods for miles and miles, but there she stood overseeing a small portion of her vast empire. Today is Victoria Day in Canada. Keep your eyes open, her empire was vast and her reign was long and you never know where she might pop up.

Happy Victoria Day!
