painting and photographic works

Skies – Two West Coast Painting

Here a couple more of my paintings from the early-nineties on the west coast (of Canada) theme.   No doubt the skies  in these paintings were influenced by skies in some works of Emily Carr

Bending to the Sky

“Bending to the Sky” 61 by 61 cm (24″x2″) acrylic on hardboard (Masonite)

Although I don’t recall where the scenes for these paintings were, I suspect they were very close together, perhaps even developed from the same reference photo.

Turning Sky

“Turning Sky” 61 by 61 cm (24″x2″) acrylic on canvas

During this period of time I was painting exclusively with acrylics, either on hardboard panels or on canvas. At this time I would build my own stretcher frames and stretched and gessoe the canvas myself.
