Flag Day in Canada 2016 - Inspired by the Maple Leaf

It's Flag Day in Canada, yes that beautiful and bold red maple leaf is now 51 years old, and she is still a beautiful sight. Over the past eight years the maple leaf has inspired many a painting, whether using the composition of the flag for a painting or incorporating the flag itself into a painting, I have danced with her on numerous occasions. Below is a retrospective of some her influence over my subconscious over the years. Happy Flag Day Canada!
