No shock art here,
no controversy, no politics or bleeding hearts, no using pain to convince that you should have my art, there's really no other reason why I paint, just a couple of simple ones: I love to paint, I love my geography, and I love to share it. I'm thrilled beyond belief when it resonates with someone, and even more thrilled when someone feels moved by it enough to share hard earned dollars to acquire what I do. It's a circle of love. I love, you love and through this wonderful medium of oil on canvas we share love. Love of our land, love of our water, love of our trees and all things around them.
No shock art here. no radical viewpoints, I'm not a rebel from the streets. I'm just Joe Canadian and I'm just Joe Painter. Pine tree painter, as they call me. I paint other things too. But painting is all I do and it's a deeply appreciated privilege to be able to spend my days doing it, and making my living in the process.

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.
