Acrylic & Mixed Media on Canvas


Wintertide tries to capture the surreal and intense quality of winter sunsets on Georgian Bay. The hues are so vibrant and warm, that they seem to defy logic that this exists on a cold winter's evening.

Moving across the painting, the sheen of the pouring medium mimics the sparkle and dynamism of water, bringing a sense of life and transformation to the canvas. Bold textures balance and contrast with the delicate sheen, just as nature and life grace us with tranquility and engulf us simultaneously. Gestural lines and reflective pools over aspects of painted imagery and texture combine to create a landscape that meanders between abstraction and realism.
