Opening this friday at The Atelier Gallery in Vancouver is Brad Woodfin's second solo exhibition; The Returning. Lisa the Gallery manager sent me over a few images of the paintings that will be in the show. I was floored by the intensity and beauty that Brad captures of the animals he paints. He also paints a real old time quality to the portraits making it hard to determine what era they are from. I love animals so much...I swear I'd have a farm in my backyard if it wasn't completely illegal and my family wouldn't disown me. If you are in the Vancouver area and you get to the show, let me know how it is! To see the whole show via the world wide webby check out Atelier's page. P.s. fun fact: Did you know that the big geese that fly down from Canada are actually called Canada Geese and not Canadian Geese. Wild, right?
