Mountain Born

November 18, 2018 · Filed Under Uncategorized · Comment 

“Mountain Born” is a 36 inch by 36 inch acrylic painting. This painting was inspired by a recent drive along the Sea to Sky Hwy up to Whistler. I added a bear claw into the mountain in the foreground to represent the wildlife and the foothills are in the shape of seals. It is an engagement gift to my daughter and her Fiance as they were both “Mountain Born”.



Serendipidy is a 24 inch x 36 inch acrylic palette knife and brush painting. The inspiration for this painting (and also my other recent painting Serenity”) came from a recent weekend up in Whistler with my youngest daughter. I noticed all of the lovely birch trees in gardens around the hotels and stores. One of the days while we were there, it was overcast with a grey sky back shadowing the trees. I was quite taken with the relaxing effect it gave in combination with the soft white of the birch. It felt very serene……and caught my eye while sipping my Earl Grey tea from a local coffee shop.
