This painting took me 2 sessions to complete. The first day it started out sunny where by the end it was raining and completely clouded over. The second session was mostly sunny which helped because then the light stayed quite consistent for me to finish this piece.
There is a trail behind where I lived that follows this river up to Cheakamus Lake and along with that trail there is allot of cool spots to paint. I anticipate a whole series of paintings along the Cheakamus River but for now here is the first!
I am a contemporary Canadian artist working and living in Whistler, BC, Canada. My body of work extends across many different subjects and mediums. I was a drawing major in art school, after which I moved into oil painting for a number of years and for the last 4 years have been focusing primarily on stone sculpture. Nature and people have always been consistent themes in my work and over the past few years, I have also been drawing a lot of inspiration from the animal kingdom. I do find I like to have a balance in my work of both realism as well as expression and interpretation. I have shown my work in various different venues from galleries to museums to alternative spaces and have my art in collections around the world.
