“This painting took me countless hours to complete and spanned the better part of 4 years. I began it in Grande Prairie, Alberta not long after my first child was born & finished it in Edmonton, Alberta not long after my second child was born. If there were ever a piece I could label 'Epic', it would be this one. When I look at the imagery and the insane busy-ness of it, it truly encompasses the time my wife & eventually two children spent there. I was involved in the catering industry in the oilfield and everybody wanted everything yesterday. I still regularly think to myself how much I don't miss that industry!"
