Limited edition reproductions of this painting are available. Only available in one size, and there are only 88 editions in a run. After that, the print will be retired permanently.

 

Framed so that the watercolour floats in the centre to show off the torn edges (torn edges are very hard to photograph so in the images above it looks straight-edged). The floating frame will play with the light even further enhancing the painting that is focused on nature, clouds, and light.

 

A modern style framing without a mat cutout but with the floating mount to play with the light. Framed in a beautiful silver frame with a dark blue mat background.

 

The 2020 Skyscape Collection

In 2020, I embarked on a transformative artistic endeavor, dedicating myself to creating a watercolour painting daily. A homage to Alberta's extraordinary skyline, capturing its dramatic beauty and ever-changing allure. Little did I know that the arrival of COVID-19 in March would infuse my work with an entirely new significance, forever altering its meaning.

Amidst the uncertainty and challenges of the pandemic, my paintings became a poignant reminder of the importance of mental wellness and self-care. Serving as a gentle nudge to venture outdoors, breathe in the fresh air, and find solace in the expansive sky. Regardless of our physical separation, the sky binds us together, reminding us we are never truly alone in our struggles.

This project carries multiple layers of meaning. To those unfamiliar with Alberta, it is an open invitation to explore our skies and discover the extraordinary beauty that graces our province year-round. It transcends superficial narratives and invites visitors to witness and immerse themselves in the vibrant tapestry of Alberta's landscapes.

For fellow Albertans, this collection serves as a celebration of our remarkable home. In times that have tested our strength, it ignites a spark of hope and resilience. It reminds us to look upward, appreciate simple joys, and find solace in the unbreakable bonds we share as a community. We are a people who support one another, lend a helping hand in times of need, and together celebrate life's moments, regardless of the challenges we face.

 

Each painting seamlessly transitions into the next, offering a sense of calm and an opportunity for introspection. A visual sanctuary that invites viewers to pause, reflect, and find peace amidst the brushstrokes. Embark on this artistic journey together, explore the depths of our emotions, celebrate the resilient spirit of Alberta, and discover the profound connections within our shared skies.
