“Heat” 36″x48″ Acrylic Painting on Canvas

The two large 36″ x 48″ paintings together make a stunning visual impact!

I love working with interior designers for this exact reason – they aren’t afraid to mix colours, textures and styles of art to make a bold visual statement.

This house is sophisticated and elegantly decorated in neutral greys and soft whites – but it is far from being drab and boring! Unique accessories and colourful contemporary artwork throughout the home add style and personality.

“Heat” 36″x48″ (Detail Image) Acrylic Painting on Canvas

The main feature in this home is the open concept kitchen and dining room (you’ll have to take my word on this – it’s huge and stunning – grand elegance personified!)

The home owners wanted a large work of art to hang as a focal point in the open concept room. They chose to commission this custom landscape painting.

The beautiful thing about commissioning a work of art is that you are able to work closely with me to establish the perfect size of painting to suit your space, incorporate meaningful subjects (in this landscape, it was the Alberta prairies and Rocky Mountains), as well as fine tune the colour palette.

“Fondness For Grey” 36″x36″ (Detail Image) Acrylic Painting on Canvas

This painting incorporates a variety of neutral grey tones while adding subtle touches of colour and texture throughout the sky, Rocky Mountains and prairie landscape.

They are still adding the finishing touches to the home decor but once the project is complete and professionally photographed, I will be sure to post photos of all four paintings in their newly designed home!
