      This was done a while back with a friend at Brockton Point in Stanley Park. We both wanted to punch lazy in the face and motivate each other by waking up at 6am to paint. She looked like she brought all the oil paint supplies she has ever owned with her. I had all the paint I needed in a handy travel sized Winsor & Newton palette and a 5x7 sketchbook. This took 6hrs of painting. I wanted to make each head read well enough since they were pretty small to paint. I added some pencil scribbles on the side describing what the animals are on each pole. The Totem Poles are not religious symbols but can be viewed as stories carved in wood. They communicate important aspects like culture, legends, beliefs and clan lineage.
