A few photos from the Opening Reception of March 28th, 
including some riveting early Canadian portraits 
from the fabulous BENSEN Collection ... 

My favorite two paintings:: Timothy Eaton, Grandson of retail titan Timothy Eaton,
painted by by Maurice Codner in 1930 - 
(Timothy Eaton was founder of Eatons Department Store, an icon of Canadian retail) -
and a charming Mrs. Woodhouse, painted by Nathanial Dame, circa 1750.
In both instances the depiction of 'character' and use of colour are exquisite.

The Crowd at McMaster Innovation Place.


Third fav portrait of the evening:  my pal 'Petey'
in front of my landscape on the ground floor of the Atrium at MIP.
