Purely Canadian Paintings
Purely Canadian Paintings. A kind patron once asked me this question: “What is your style and how do you describe your work? I said that the paintings I do are characteristically Canadian. My paintings offer the patron a wide variety to choose from. I do not restrict myself into a certain topic or feature in long running themes. It is true that I have many pine tree type paintings and I guess that is as close as I come to long running themes, but across the board I offer many subjects in that which I paint. This is one very Canadian aspect of what I call my style. Canada is made up of the most diverse peoples in the world. As well, this land encourages people to express themselves in individual ways, therefore Canada is seen by the world as a nation of many colours and cultures in a wonderful way. While offering my patrons a variety of paintings my common denominator is the simple and peaceful personality of each painting. Even those with drama in the subject still offer a sense of peace and hope in time of trouble (ie: North Wind Place). This too is very Canadian. We as a nation and a people are seen by the world as peace keepers. We are seen as polite and courteous. So this is how I describe my work and style to anyone who asks, Purely Canadian.

The Pine Tree Painter.
How did I become known as the Pine Tree Painter? You could say I paint a lot of Pine Trees, that would be true. I paint a lot of other things too, but Pine Trees, Spruce Trees, Birch and others seem to be a continuous string in what i do. I just like the way they stand there like a custodian of the land. or a greeter to nature. So, I continue down the path with the Pine Tree Painter name on my head, It's ok.
