About the Artwork

I wanted to capture the glamour of gowns worn by leading ladies for red carpet events. The tree, as the leading lady, wears her billowing, floating gown as her onlookers watch from a distance. My stylized, almost minimalist rendition of an oak in autumn. Layers of smooth acrylic paint using transparent hues allow the painting to glow in low lighting.

Barbel Smith, AFCA

Green Valley, Ontario

Bärbel received her training through self-study and attending Alberta University of the Arts. She has travelled from coast to coast capturing the colours, light, and joy in her depiction of the Canadian landscape; focusing on the emotive use of colour and line – erasing details and infusing her spiritual vision.

"I create lyrical semi-abstract landscape paintings using acrylic or oil. I strive to see beyond the busy surface and interpret the light, colours and shapes of this numinous land. While my paintings are inspired by on-site plein-air sketches; the final result approaches the realm of surrealism."
