Good news! As a last minute bonus, we were able to arrange for my show of 20 original drawings from “Innocence Lost: A play about Steven Truscott” to go up at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa during their production throughout March.
Since I always like to use new images for a post, I’ll
leave you with my final set of sketches of Innocence Lost. These were
partially at the dress rehearsal, and partially during a press preview,
where selected scenes were run for the benefit of the media. I was
working surreptitiously so as not to distract the journalists, so these
were done in near darkness in a little notebook. I’m working with a
water based pen, so I was able to go in afterwards and make painterly
washes out of my furtive scribblings.
If you are in Ottawa, I hope you’ll stop by and see the sketches – ideally after seeing Beverly Cooper’s emotional and thought provoking play. Innocence Lost is at the National Arts Centre from February 22 to March 16.
