Landscape painting – Canadian, international, imaginary

Within each of us I believe there is a special place of peace and happiness. What would happen if we shared these places with each other? Could they fashion a shield to protect us from invasive stresses of today’s life?

In my latest landscape series, “My Peace”, I depict serene and tranquil scenes to prompt a conversation about the importance of establishing practices to deal with stressful situations in our daily lives. Behind each painting is a story, either mine or one shared with me, intended to spark the conversation and inspire others to reflect on this subject matter.

In my landscape painting series I explore nature around us, our relationship with it, how we influence each other. Some of these oil paintings are real existing places, others – imaginary, inspired by travel experience. I paint mostly in my Toronto based studio with occasional Plein Air sessions in the summer.

What does your peaceful landscape look like? Are there paintings around you that inspire or calm your mind and soul? If you had absolutely no limits, what would your world look like? Let’s imagine it together. When I’m thinking of a landscape painting I want it to reflect my mood, emotion and my best skills.
