Update: August 10, 2017

3 down, 1 to go!

On July 31, Team Quebec took on Team Yukon in a men’s basketball round robin game and Peter captured the energy on the court with his first Art of the Games live painting, In the Paint.

In the Paint

On Aug. 1, while Peter was painting a high jumper at athletics, Quebecer Mikella Lefebvre-Oatis took the gold medal in women’s high jump with a record-breaking leap. The high jumper Peter was painting originally had a red uniform, but he painted over her uniform with blue to match the record-breaker. He captured the excitement of this moment with his second Art of the Games live painting, For the Record.

For the Record

On Aug. 8, while taking in the swimming events at Pan Am Pool, Peter completed his third live painting, Gold Blooded.

Peter will capture the spirit of 2017 Canada Games as a whole in his final Art of the Games piece this Sunday before the Closing Ceremony. Stay tuned to our blog for pictures!
