Acclaimed Victoria-based artist Brandy Saturley, whose work you’ve seen here and which you can see again right here, has come up with a cool project idea.
She calls it the People of Canada Project and is asking folks to send her photos like the one below, and at the end of 2014, twenty will be selected from the ones submitted and used as portrait references.
So if you and a friend or partner want to become immortalized by a great Canadian artist and have your portrait hung in an art gallery, just read her link below to see how to do it, send her your photo, and become famous!
The plan is to exhibit all of the photos along with the painted portraits in a Canadian venue/gallery as part of Canada150 celebrations.
The link with all the details is here – People of Canada project.
Brandy suggests you try to do something that sort of mirrors the famous Grant Wood painting, as this couple below did.
