Siemens Canada 100th Anniversary Calendar


Six paintings depicting milestones in the hundred year history of Siemens in Canada, based on a variety of source material, including old and fuzzy black and white photographs from the early nineteen hundreds. I enjoy the additional research about the moment itself, how people dressed in that period, the colours, etc. That kind of digging helps me imagine and interpret the scene, and finally create the composition. Pete Froggatt painted the other six images for the calendar.
