About the Artwork

Big, dry, stark, beautiful. Words fail me. This valley impressed me like no other I’ve been through. It sounds like a cliché by now, but I feel could paint the Thompson Valley for years without getting tired of it. The railroad snakes along both sides of the river, eastward on the left bank and westward on the right, as each bank is too narrow for a double track. Huge trains look like toys against the hills. The sky and water were an intense blue, and the few trees that can find purchase in the dry soil punctuate the clefts in the hills where a little water collects. Phenomenal.

Carol Loeb, SFCA

Yarker, Ontario

Collectively, Carol’s work is a contrast of the engineered or built environment to the wilderness. She works mainly in acrylics, usually blocking in dark and mid-tone areas first then adding thin layers of saturated colour to create luminosity and depth. The resulting realism goes beyond photographic representation of place.

"To capture these emotive qualities of the subject and have the image go beyond the purely representational, I often use contrasting saturated, complimentary colours to create a vibrancy and emphasis that goes beyond the pretty picture."
