Harriet’s Church

12″X12” Acrylic on canvas

Urban, but not a sketch. This is another I have been working on for the “Small Feats” fundraiser, now postponed indefinitely.

The Salem Chapel, or British Methodist Episcopal Church was founded in 1820 by African American freedom seekers and was a centre of abolitionist activity. Harriet Tubman was probably the most famous member of this congregation.
It is located in downtown St. Catharines.

Sts. Cyril and Methodius (again)

12″X12” Acrylic on canvas

Here is another square foot painting, possibly for submission to Small Feats, the annual Niagara Artists Centre show and fundraiser. We shall see.
Sts. Cyril and Methodius is a Ukrainian Catholic church in St. Catharines. It is a familiar sight to anyone who drives the Queen Elizabeth Way between Hamilton and Niagara Falls, as it is right by the highway.

Another Small Feat

12″X12” Acrylic on canvas

I have started working on some paintings for NAC’s annual “Small Feats” fundraiser. Here is the first, perhaps not quite finished but nearly there.
I am not sure that you can actually see these buildings anymore, they are pretty hidden behind the Meridian Centre. But a few years ago these rear views were among the first things you saw when coming off the 406. I always liked them. I believe that the stilts were there because rge raceway used to run along there.
