My work is inspired by the landscape, sky, water and ice of a place, and especially of my home, Alberta. I try to capture the feeling and not a literal representation. I am particularly inspired by the sunset. The grand light at the end of the day, reflecting upon clouds, the landscape and the falling off to the deep indigo of the night sky. We are all familiar with the saying, “In Alberta, if you don’t like the weather, wait 5 minutes.” I use colour and movement to try to capture the sense of change we see on a daily and even minute by minute basis, whether it be the slow movement of a glacier, a violent summer storm or a lingering summer sunset.
I will also have a series of affordable mixed media abstracts from my FIRE series. These pieces are produced with oils, solventsm metallic spray paints and actual fire.
I'll be set up in at spot 28 right next to the gazebo in central McIntyre (Gazebo) park.
