Bovine Bas Relief

Toronto is the home of Exhibition Place where annual events, such as the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair , and the Canadian National Exhibition take place. I was waiting in line with my niece to buy tickets at the last "Royal", and I notice a few carved relief livestock medallions, and naturally I photographed them. Built in 1931, the Horse Palace was designed by architect J.J. Woolnough in the Art Deco style, and is endlessly fascinating. I am now working on a series of paintings of these architectural details on the agricultural buildings on the Ex grounds.
