The Artist notes about this beautiful painting:
“This painting was used for the poster in 1999, for the Royal Winter Fair. Working at the fair in 1998, I was able to demonstrate to people how I go about constructing a painting combining many elements. The models whom I photographed are my niece, her husband and their son. The house, although shown in the painting as near Toronto, (note the C.N.Tower) is actually near Shelbourne, Ontario. Because of its use for the poster for the Royal Winter Fair, I attempted to show as many animal types as possible.”
P.S. … Kent Spencer and I were lucky enough to pose for Pete for this painting. It will always have a very special place in our hearts!
