Plein Air Artists, this is for you. I am happy to announce that the much anticipated painting adventure to Algoma is ready for booking. This is an amazing opportunity to follow in the footsteps of the Group of Seven painters and to paint in a region of Canada that has become iconic for its views and picturesque unspoiled nature.
This is a dream start-up for me, so I would welcome all the support you can give to get this off the ground. Everything has been painstakingly planned to make sure that your comfort and inspiration is not interrupted. This is a must for any plein air artist who want unrivaled inspiration, space and time to work on their Plein Air art http://northwindadventures.ca/
Spaces are limited (honestly they are only 12 per trip) so book now please.
Specialized plein air painting travel adventures in Canada. Art specialized travel to unusual places that provide great scenery and subject for painting, photography as well as other artistic and recreational goals.

The Thrill of Plein Air Travel.

There is something primeval about being in the wilderness. Deep in our psyche we have the instincts that are activated when we are in the wild. Thousands of years of dormancy have not erased these ...

You seem to have hit my tastes today. Van Morrison and Jim Croce, two of my all time favorites.

A moody impressionist interpretation of a snow falling in a forest with a brook rolling by. I wanted to texture the image so that one could feel the harshness of this scene, the cold and the grit it takes to survive here.

Story
Introduction

Through my artwork I attempt to explore light on the Canadian Landscape. There is a certain temperature to the light up here, a crispness that is uniquely Canadian. It speak to me in a harmony of colours. Delicate but savage; rich but not overwhelming – elegant. I hope it comes through in my work. 

What began as an inward journey to escape the war ravaged city that I grew up in, has metamorphosed from dark brooding symbolism in my youth, to colourful optimism and a celebration of light today. I still remember bleeding the colours together while the crackle of machine guns and mortar rounds rose above ELP, Pink Floyd and Yes.Nous Sommes Du Soleil. Ha! Those were the dark days. 

I paint because I fall in love with a moment. Sometimes I capture it successfully, and other times – too many times – I fail.  I am proud to say that my artwork has seeped into private collections from Australia through Europe to North America. I cherish all my collectors and value their choice to own my artwork. In a way, a work of art is not whole until someone owns it. I am grateful for that.

I am the recipient of the 2010 Forest Award and the 2009 Lodge Award for plein air painting in Ontario. I have organized and presently lead the Ontario Plein Air Society, a group of Ontario painters dedicated to painting the Canadian landscape from life.
