Every Morning

Paul RasporichComment

This painting,  entitled Every Morning -  I did in 1995, was of my son Kai playing with duplo (large lego). At the time, I was painting portraits and parenting full-time. The painting in the background was entitled, Sunday Morning, and was done by an amazing Canadian painter by the name of Jack Chambers (I don't own the original). Jack Chambers would have produced many master works had he not died young of leukemia. This piece is an homage painting to him, as I am fairly certain he was in the same kind of domestic routine and mindset as I was when he did his painting. The City of Calgary purchased this painting many years ago, and I just learned this week that it will be featured on Bus shelters with other artist's work around Calgary in the next couple of years.
