All paintings are oil on canvas.I am a BC contemporary artist who loves exploring my surroundings: There are so many images to capture in the beautiful Okanagan valley. They change with the weather, the seasons, and the time of day. There’s more to Okanagan Landscapes than mountains, Lake Okanagan, and vineyards. Living in this beautiful valley offers many uniques vistas to enjoy. I don't take those opportunities for granted, but observe the light, contrasts, hues, and textures and establish a relationship with the landscapes. I look at the way the light reflects on the various elements, the way the atmosphere changes the colour of the mountains in the distance, the tone, shape and hue of the shadows.
The secret of oil painting is not in the act of painting itself, although technique and knowledge is important, but in the quality of the artist's power of observation.
