This painting from our recent trip to the Kensington Market District of Toronto just won the Juror’s Choice Award for the Calgary Sketch Club’s Elveden Show.

I have previously posted a version of this image but I have made quite few changes in this painting.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the importance of a painting telling some kind of story. The feedback I’ve gotten on this painting has generally been about just that.  People  saying that they wonder what’s going on in this street.

I really enjoy hearing comments like that and I am also very appreciative of the award.
