For a plein air artist, living in Alberta, Canada is like winning the lottery. There’s pretty much nothing you can’t paint. We are blessed with all four seasons, and as diverse a geography as one could possibly hope to have, living in Canada. And I paint in as many of each, as I can, bears and snowstorms permitting.
So when I was speaking with local gallery, Framed on Fifth, about doing a show this year I knew exactly the topic I would explore – plein air in Southern Alberta. I also knew exactly who I’d invite to do the show with me – my good friend and fellow plein air artist, Hermann Brandt. Hermann and I have put on a lot of miles together painting in Alberta. Plein air painting here has lots of challenges – weather, terrain and otherwise (as our title suggests!). So, we are pleased to present this show of our plein air works – we hope you’ll come see it.
A couple dates to keep in mind:
Friday, Sept 6 from 6-9pm: Grand Opening
Sat Sept 28: Hermann and I will be doing a painting demo – come watch us create our latest painting
Framed on Fifth
1207 – 5 Ave NW
A few images from our latest excursions, and of some select paintings I’ll have at the show:
