Election Day in Canada

It’s federal election day in Canada. In honour of that, and after voting earlier this morning, I’m posting this portrait I painted of our Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, in 2009.  It was autumn then, as now, and I happened to have some ornamental gourds in my apartment.  I placed one of them on his head to counteract his severe nature and policies.  He is running for reelection today and we’ll know later if he and his Conservative Party will remain in power.
