Oil on Canvas

"The landscapes of Canada's beautiful country provide my inspiration, especially those in my area. Using oils, a painting knife and a canvas, I paint the colours and moods I feel in the landscapes around me. I love the earth colours and I love the texture I get when using a knife. My paintings are of the impressionistic style. Through my series work I explore the concept that the same scene can be portrayed in many different ways subject to colours used, time of day, seasons, weather conditions, etc. My paintings explore the influence of man and nature in my world."
