58 Original Paintings to view in one lovely exhibit – Hope you can make it before it ends! April – May 4th in Canadian Pacific Gallery (Main Floor)
This show is a juxtaposition of small paintings completed outdoors and larger expressive abstracts, informed by the plein air works. In the larger works, details of subject are diminished and emotional brushwork and abstract elements predominate. This is also a First time exhibit of selected video paintings from my YouTube Channel. I am very pleased to show this latest collection oils, acrylics and watercolours together. Thank you to Janice Cotter for her display expertise!

There is something necessarily valuable in the works done with our hands, whether it is knitting, painting, making something, playing an instrument, typing, cooking, cleaning, communicating or sharing a helping hand. These are all authentic ways to partake in our human existence and appreciate each other.
In my latest video I am pleased to wear a hand made hat that keeps me warm and inspires the artist in me simply because it was a shared gift.
I share my painting exercise of 37 stroke paintings and my process for plein air work in my latest videos hoping that you may enjoy this handiwork of mine.
Thank you for being a supportive subscriber. Best to you and your handiwork.
As the evening light hits the totem poles on Burnaby Mountain, I explain that painting something already made can be an inspiration. I limit this 11 x 14 oil painting to 37 brush strokes while counting the strokes with cones that I found with my hands.
A 37 stroke painting in oils, I make simple shapes using negative and positive painting to bring about an impression of totem poles on Burnaby Mountain responding emotionally with my hand. Set to soft music.
Please enjoy, subscribe and pass on. Thank you from Jane
