A gallery of paintings made on site or plein air that explore the human narrative on the land. These paintings can take weeks to make, working in all conditions form heat or rain, moving to evening and in solitude and in public. This project seeks a rapport with place through painting - the canvas, a nexus of place and person. I am grateful for support from the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation and the BC Arts Council for this project.
