New Tree Paintings

I am focusing on creating new tree paintings for the first part of 2009, and so far, a few pieces have been completed and several more are in progress and nearing completion.

Previously, my tree series highlighted trees from the Kananaskis area (where I lived most of my life) and thus featured mostly Limber Pines. This time, in honour of my relatively new home on the island, I have created two new pieces of a gorgeous Alpine Fir tree on one of my favourite local hikes, Jocelyn Hill:

This tree overlooks the Finlayson Arm near the Malahat in the Gowlland Tod Provincial Park. Both paintings depict the same tree and only differ in size and slightly in perspective.

I am also working on an extensive collection of paintings of a gloriously tangled tree on Hat Creek Road in the Cache Creek area of British Columbia. These paintings will feature the same tree on different sizes of canvas and custom-shaped wood throughout different seasons. This series should be finished within the next few weeks, at which point I will post them onto my website for viewing and sale.
