Rowing on Glenmore
Inspired during a warm fall day last year at Glenmore Park, Calgary, AB. It was a perfect day for rowing and I was all set up to start a plein air painting when this group appear very close to me. They were rowing and chatting, it looked like a perfect moment for them, and I thought I would recreate it using a photograph while remembering the moment.
It is an oil painting on canvas prepared with PVA glue and oil ground, varnished and framed with a floating black frame.

My paintings start with a pull of attraction to an everyday object or landscape because of the light, or even my feelings that day. To achieve my painting language, I use oil paints in a very empirical way producing work that is one of a kind.

breeze or the warmth of the sun”."
