48″ x 24″ High Relief Carved Painting • Acrylic & Mixed Media on hardboard panel.
The Day is a semi abstract blend of relief and painting and features some of Calgary’s most loved statues and architecture as well as our fabulous skyline. The words “This is the Day” as well as the word “onward” from the Calgary crest, are in the painting backgrounds shown in relief form. This series of paintings symbolizes the strength of Calgary’s people in times of economic stress and their power to come back stronger than before. This is the day that we will fight to keep our city strong and move onward rather than let the economy stifle our creativity.
