Edith Cavell, Jasper National Park, August

‘Jasper is no ordinary place. Everything is bigger than life including my gallery owner, Wendy Wacko. I had the pleasure of painting with her one beautiful Jasper afternoon.  She just returned from a four day kayak trip in storm force wind and rain navigating into the back recesses of Maligne Lake. Most people would have passed on the invite to go plein air painting up in Edith Cavell, but not Wendy.  We hiked up a formidable moraine spine, ladened with our packs full of easels and paint,Read more

En Plein Air, Field Studies

‘En plein air’ is a French phrase meaning “in the open air” and has come to be known today as outdoor painting or field studies. Artists have long painted outside but in the mid-1800’s, working in natural light became accessible as technology in paint became more portable.
