Eastend Sketches

There’s been some interest online in some of my paintings, so, I figured I better start throwing some of them up here.

The Eastend Sketches are a series of seventeen small (6 inch x 6 inch) acrylic paintings on canvas. The scenes are in and around the small Southern Saskatchewan town named Eastend, childhood home of novelist Walace Stegner and a place of quite startling light.

The Sketches are the product of a number of high summer visits to Eastend at the invitation of artist and gallery owner Pat Jacob. Mr. Jacob noticed four of my Apellean Sketches at the Edmonton Art Gallery (now Art Gallery of Alberta) and felt the landscape around Eastend and my style would be compatible. I am very grateful to Mr. Jacob for the invitation and for the confidence in my abilities he showed by purchasing a number of my Eastend paintings for his gallery.
