In getting ready for the “West to East Canadian Landscapes in Paint” solo exhibition opening on June 30, 2017, I have inhaled the passionate fragrances from many rendered experiences of the last few years. From climbing along the bluffs recently of Galiano Island
to painting with umbrella rattling in the breeze
while rain, sun and mist tumbling endlessly across the horizon
to maneuvering carefully on the narrow red cliffs of Prince Edward Island last May,
Canada has an exhilarating and engaging topography!
From one crashing sea on the west coast
to another on the east coast,
my brushes are hardly every still. There is more to capture the heart and imagination then there are tubes of paint to feverishly brush onto a surface. Still, I give it my best!
Though this solo exhibition of 25 works is inspired by Canada 150 celebrations (and it will open on the Canada Day long weekend), there is so much more influencing these canvases, thousands of years more!
What natural environments bring your own heart to crescendo of emotion?
