Meaning of Hermitage

What does the Hermitage mean to you?  This is the question posed by Leanne Pluthero and Marla Loretta (on Aug 22nd), organizers behind the Save the Hermitage Facebook page.  Artist Chris Erskine tries to answer this question as an individual and as an artist.

The 1875 McClure House Painting Sketch Project – Part 2

Sorry for the rough quality of the video, but ran out of memory on my SDRC card.

Artist Chris Erskine continues with his painting sketch of the 1875 McClure House located west of Toronto. Mr. McClure was a stage coach-hotel business person. The location is half-way between Hamilton and Toronto. People would travel by stage coach from the 1830s to the turn of the 1880s. This is the fourth visit to this location.

Canvas Mural – Part 2

This is a first attempt at creating a canvas mural that can be used in film and event productions.  The canvas is untreated cotton and is left over material from other projects.  Based on the results of this project, I will plan something more complex for a future work.

The canvas mural is just one of several ongoing projects that is occurring this summer.

Thanks for your interest and support.
