Bunting House, PEC (triptych)

Bunting House, PEC 36" x 84" (36" x 36" (centre); 36" x 24" (each side)), oil on canvas, 2016, private collection This is a big commission I recently completed for a couple who live in Toronto but have had this house in Prince Edward County for a couple of decades.

While we originally discussed a triptych, we later settled on one large painting, but finding a canvas the desired size proved difficult, so we went back to a manageable, but large, triptych. Pencil phase. Part of the fun and interest for me was going to be painting the lovely shadows of the trees on the grass. I also liked the bright white house surrounded by so much green. There's a whole lot of canvas
