Brandy’s People Project

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.

  1. ‘I noticed Mr. Kreider on a breakaway tonight, and even when tripped from behind, found the wherewithal to brake and steer away from Jonathan Quick, and go collapse in a pathetic whiny heap in the corner while trying to draw a penalty call. And I wondered if, or more accurately, understood that, it was a function of the shamelessness of his prior bulldozing assaults on goalies, now nicely compendiumed on YouTube, and the gajillion cameras trained on him that made him decide to not try the Fleury-Anderson-Price manoeuvre.

    A pox on you Boo Shirts. May you lose Games 3 and 4 all at once on Monday, and have a collective bathroom accident on the ice in front of your fans.

    And a root canal the next day. ‘

    Says it as well I view. Them rangers are getting their own back… he says, what most of us Habs fans are feeling and thinking.

  2. As always you have interesting things about hockey up here… meanwhile I rethought what I was saying before. I am not any longer convinced the Habs could not have taken the Kings. Had Price not been knocked out Prust would not have gotten knocked out for that two game suspension. We would have won the second game and by then, all bets would have been off. I watched the way the Kings are kicking the Rangers around, and yes, they’re good one of the best, but I am not sure the Habs would have fallen the way the Rangers are. The Rangers are good but I think they had that break taking down Price. With Price there the whole series would have unfolded differently. I think the Habs would have played it very differently from than the Rangers are. I was blow away by how fast they were in that first game against the Kings, they resembled the Habs, but they don’t have the cohesion of a Habs team the Habs would’ve had with Price.

    Hockey and the Habs never ends! hahahh Good night.
