Winter in Toronto!


As Winter in Toronto comes to an end, I thought I would post my submission for “The Star’s” Winter In Toronto Contest for emerging artists. You can see the winners here.  The winning piece definitely deserved the win. I love the style and simplicity of the painting and its definitely something all Torontonians could relate to.

I have pasted my submission below. I randomly polled my friends to find out what Winter in Toronto reminded them of in one word, and decided to combine it all in this 11×17 drawing on bristol vellum using graphite pencils.

I called the piece “Winter Window”, and it depicts what one would dream of right before the beginning of the winter season. Of course, this is complete with a cup of hot Canadian coffee!
