Painting Landscapes

I never thought that I would want to paint landscapes or paint small! These landscapes were based on the photos taken during my research for the Alberta Farm and Ranch Women Project. It was at that time I realized how much I love the landscape and appreciate being outdoors, enjoying the amazing sites we have in our backyards. I started painting very rough abstract landscapes in 2013 and since then I have been basing the paintings on one of these themes: mountains, sky and field series, which reflect the diverse landscape of the Western provinces.

Specifically the landscapes are based on my travels through Alberta, Saskatchewan and British Columbia.

I acknowledge that the photos taken were in Treaty 6,7 and 8 territories.

Listed below are some of the places that I have been lucky enough to travel to and take photos to reference while painting in my studio.
