Our Canada Project 2017
I am an acrylic artist, and alongside another artist (friend) we are painting 150 paintings of Canada for Canada's 150th; 75 each, representing all provinces and territories. We have enlisted the help of Canada via Instagram/facebook to share their landscape photos with us as we haven't been able to travel through all of Canada. We have chosen 75 that we feel represent our country well but also have beautiful stories, composition, light,...and come from Canadians! We are painting them each in our own unique styles. We have been accepted to show the project in the Three Sisters Gallery in Canmore, Ab in September and October of this year. This project so far has introduced us to many people and helped to connect our work to the lives of others as well as to experience our country through others' eyes. We are stepping out more to share the project which has been a great challenge, as we can tend to be more solitary, often working alone. It's about our art and so much more!
