Mountain Lake Stillness
Oil on canvas
24 x 30 inches
Why do I create? All I need to do is look around at the beauty that the natural world has to offer. There is nothing deep or profound, just a love of nature. When I come across a scene where the colours and composition speak to me I am inspired to recreate it on canvas, occasionally using a bit of “artistic license”.
Using oils gives me the freedom to create the different textures one sees in nature. With this painting you have the majesty of the mountains, the stillness of the water and the movement of the grasses. Hopefully they invoke a feeling of calm and serenity and a desire to go out in the canoe and enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of nature.
