For many years I painted realism and recently a friend commissioned me to revisit those old skills. I must admit it was fun to see how my abstract work has maybe influenced my style, and shifting gears, if only briefly, was a nice change in pace. Happily the dog portrait is now gracing its new home in Toronto. I have no doubt that at some point I may paint more realism, but for the time-being, I still have much to explore in my abstract painting.
