Silent Forest  (View)

This series will finish with 24 - 30 watercolor paintings depicting scenes and images from the forests of Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest. The paintings provide a unique application of color and design with special attention given to the development of mood and texture. These attributes are critical to the overall theme of "Silent Forest". Each painting is designed to capture the emotional attachment and/or total disregard that is experienced when referencing these fragile and beautiful natural resources. Color, lighting and composition are as unique to each piece as are the inspiration and emotion required to appreciate what each painting pays tribute to.


Fascination Street

Delving into the abstract world of art which creatively displays the textures, moods and mystery of the busy streets and lifestyle in the city. Success, failure, risks and calculated paths of hope and destiny. This 17 piece ensemble will entice, provoke and entertain the mind on all levels.
