A warm bed is something most of us take for granted, and in this man's case, a subway or sewer vent is the best he can do. I borrowed from three different photographs to create this painting for Adebanji Alade whosemoleskin theme was poverty and homelessness. In Canada we know that over a million people can afford either food or shelter, but not both. Scary numbers in a country with a population around 35 million. This group does not include all of the homeless, whose profile is quickly changing to include women and children. They represent the fastest growing subgroup followed by youth.
