150 paintings. 87 days. One Cheezie-loving Queen.
If you had 87 days to paint 150 Canadian icons, where would you start?
Timothy Hoey's approach was to dive right in.
"I just started painting," says Hoey, a painter, musician, writer, tattooist, carpenter, photographer and teacher. "Not giving myself much time to think or over analyze. I just kept bouncing all over the place, and then I hit 150 and stopped."
The paintings are the latest iteration of his O Canada project in which Hoey has been exploring Canadiana for over a decade.
