ABOUT THE ARTWORK
“Sunset at Manuel Antonio Park” was painted upon my return from a vacation trip to Costa Rica. This national park had it all… the white beaches, the breaking waves, the tropical forests and the abundant wildlife were, on that day, some of the most awesome sights that I had seen in many years. It was so intoxicating that I sat on the beach that evening for over three hours just watching the sun floating slowly towards the ocean. It was so inspiring that I can still visualize the actual moment in my mind… just like it was yesterday.
As a colorist artist this form of painting is very representative of my artistic work. My landscapes are mostly scenes from the beautiful Gatineau/Laurentian Hills in western Quebec just north of Canada’s capital city Ottawa; the unspoiled Algonquin/Nipissing regions of northern Ontario and the majestic Rocky Mountains in western Canada. However, sometimes, I do indulge and paint an awesome scene that I experienced during one of my many trips outside of Canada.
Most of my artwork is created in my studio located in Gatineau, Quebec. The landscape scenes of mountains, fields, rivers, and lakes are from photographs that I have collected over the years and moments of inspirations when I was doing walkabouts somewhere in the backwoods. It is to these landscapes and memories that I apply my colorist art style, my own brand of perspective and unique painting methods.
I am the type of artist who enjoys experimenting with new painting products and mixing various visual art mediums to create an effect to achieve something special in a painting. This has allowed me to discover incredibly unique techniques that now defines my artwork and my artist portfolio. I also experiment on a regular basis with different art styles such as abstract, rupestral and portraits where I apply the same distinctive techniques and brilliant colors to produce paintings that even, on occasion, surprise me personally.
