Story Behind This Painting:
This painting is the result of my search for a subject to paint that could reflect travel memories. It seemed appropriate to consider the coins that one collected in exchange for a purchase or two. In preparing to paint a number of old coins I had, I noticed the patina and wear marks of these coins that eventually had found their way to me during my travels. Using watercolours I started with a few wet-in-wet washes to create depth and finished with the final details for each individual coin.
NOTE: May now be viewed/purchased at the Sooke Fine Arts Show 2020.
