"It's more than art, its an adventure"! I've been painting for over 20 years, and the adventure continues. I have a studio,but i do most of my painting and sketching outdoors. I've painted from mountaintops in the Yukon, carried a 50 pound pack on my back, hiked and painted in streams, painted under tarps in the snow under the watchful eye of Bald Eagles. I've painted sunrises and sunsets from boats and canoes in the spectacular Saskatchewan landscape. Its not just about the paint, its the sheer joy of being in the moment and having the ability to capture the wild outdoors on canvas.
I am very fortunate to have met 4 other men who all share the same love of art and painting. 10 Years ago we started to show our work as the “Men Who Paint” , We travel 3 times per year to paint Plein Air, and have held many shows in Saskatoon and Regina. We have published 4 books of our work, highlighted by the book “Halfway to Heaven” chronicling our 12 day trip to Ivvavik National Park, Yukon Territory.
2 of my paintings are in the permanent collection of Mann Art Gallery in Prince Albert
