Best Friend | Oil on Canvas, April 2021 | Jane Forrest

Oil on Canvas, 24 x 36 inches , April 2021

This is a portrait of my best friend, Ava. We are both painters studying contemporary art together at the Etobicoke School of the Arts. Ava was the first person in our class to be truly vulnerable with us through her art. Because of her bravery, our class now has a family-like relationship; we love and support each other through everything, and push each other to do our best work. Her honesty and her paintings have been my biggest inspiration for my own art, and without her work my art would not be where it is today. Ava has helped myself, and classmates grow to become better artists, and better people.
