Tomorrow this painting will be packaged with care and sent to it’s new home in Newport Beach, California!
My newest landscape painting was inspired by the big skies and open prairies of western Canada.
The sunrises and sunsets that we see in Calgary are incredibly stunning. The sky is so big and full of colour that it often feels like you are engulfed inside of it. I can’t help but stand in awe of the beautiful, rapidly changing shapes and colours. It’s breathtaking.
This painting is big, colourful, optimistic and definitely makes a statement!
“From Here I Can Go Anywhere” 48″x36” Acrylic Painting on Canvas
This painting (along with a colourful aspen and birch tree landscape) was originally commissioned by the City of Calgary as a public art installation for the YYC Utility Box Program. The original paintings are available for purchase.
These colourful works of art will be reproduced as a vinyl wraps to cover the utility boxes in the community of Queensland, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
When I met with the residents of Queensland to discuss what their community means to them and what qualities they would like to see expressed artistically – some of the most common responses were optimism, nature, bright colour, and “the gorgeous sunsets”!
This painting is my way of expressing all of these beautiful qualities.
In addition to the big skies and wide open landscape, the prairie crocus flower is a beautiful symbol of our Western landscape – they are wild and they are everywhere!
My unique painting technique focuses on combining bright colours, thick layered texture, and intricate patterns throughout the painting.
There are magical moments hiding in every painting, you just have to explore and find them.
In this painting, the spontaneous burst of pink emerging from behind the cluster of clouds is my favourite magical moment of the entire piece. It could be a painting all on it’s own.
