Stairway to Heaven Series, Trailblazing Series and Connector Series

Gallery of Edmonton's river valley

 
​​I focused full time on "Stairway to Heaven" and  my "Trailblazing" series of Edmonton's river valley from January 2013 to the end of May 2014 for my exhibit at The Works Art and Design Festival.    They are series of various stairs, trails and seasons leading to, or in our beautiful valley.  Both series were unveiled and a featured exhibit titled River Valley Coordinates on June 19 - July 1, 2014 at city hall for the festival.  Originals, giclee canvas reproductions and smaller reproductions on paper are for sale, enquire within or go to my online store (see above and below).  If you would like a private showing, contact me and come for a visit. Or check out my shows tab above and follow me on social media to see my latest projects and which market or festival I will be at.
 
I am continuing these series and have started another series of bridges - my Connector series of Edmonton.  My first bridge painting was of the fireworks that took place on Canada Day over the newly lit 109 Street Bridge.  The painting is called Celebration!  I also recently completed my fourth painting of my Connector Series; it is a footbridge in Capilano.  I'm also continuing my series with activities we can do outside to enjoy our river valley and the beauty of nature. 
 
Do you have a favourite trail, stairway or bridge of our beautiful river valley that you'd like me to paint?  Or, do you have an idea for a great location?  I'm open to painting anything that you think would be a fit and I'd like to hear from you.  I have now painted 61 paintings of Edmonton's beautiful river valley and look forward to continuing to capture it one painting at a time.  Below my gallery you will find my artist statement about these series.
