I don’t usually do landscapes as I find them intimidating, but I had this tall skinny canvas that seemed to need a tall landscape painting on it. So I found one of my favourite photos from Sunshine Meadows in Banff National Park and painted this lone larch tree. I titled it “Reaching for the Sunshine”. It is an acrylic on stretched canvas with a black floater frame. I plan to put it up for sale in the Spring Bow West Art Sale, April 18, 2020.
I am enjoying using lots of colour in the West Bragg Creek fall setting paintings. However it is spring now so I should try painting some with the nice bright greens. I might try that after I get the spring cleaning done and my garden planted. I took some reference photos this week when we did the Forget-Me-Not Pond cycle.
