Majestic mountains, Glacier lakes, Rolling plains, and dense forestry.
Harmony of Winter Series
As my gallery has now been opened for two weeks, I dive into my new series of paintings titled ‘Harmony Of Winter’. The first snowfall has arrived and I am immediately drawn to the beauty and magic of a fresh fallen snowy landscape. Keeping this series soft and harmonic was my theme as I feel our world needs this right now, almost like one of my mottos: “less is more”.
This was initially inspired by a photo from Whistler, whereby I did I large painting of Glacier Creek, but it soon took on its own direction — reminding me of our family trip to Whistler in 2011. Our five kids were all together skiing after my Dad had just passed and I recall taking a moment amongst the mountains and pines and spruces just taking it all in. Harmony comes to mind as being with my whole family who made everything okay. Enjoy.

Glorious Three Sisters
The Peaks, Canmore, Alberta – Oil on Canvas
Although I’ve painted the Three Sisters twice before, I never seem to tire of this view. All of my approaches have been different, bringing a change in mood, season, and hopefully triggers reactions of beauty to my viewers. The Three Sisters are iconic, a landmark many of us have come across in our travels of Western Canada. My sister is a photographer of nature and sent me this close up of the peaks for inspiration. Putting my trademark ‘purples’ on the peaks have it the drama it deserved. Hope you enjoy.

Three Sisters Peaks 1
Banff Alberta – Oil on Canvas
The Three Sisters, what a Canadian iconic landmark. This is my second time painting this mountain, and they were both done completely different. I was sitting in a restaurant when I saw this particular view. I felt like you could almost reach out and touch the mountain tops. There were maybe 45 minutes left of daylight so the colours were rich and magnificent. I wanted to lend a mood to this painting by using blues, turquoise, and yellows. You can feel the day is almost done.
