I am also happy to announce that this painting, Low Light at Base, Fernie Ski Resort, has been chosen for the juried exhibition, Scenes from Western Canada, of the Federation of Canadian Artists, that will be held from 6 to 18 September at the Gallery of the Federation of Canadian Artists at 1241 Cartwright Street, Granville Island, Vancouver. Again, I’m surprised and flattered, considering I just joined the Federation a few months ago and will be in the company of my “elders and betters”. This painting was a royal b**ch to paint. The light was just impossible, since the photo I was working from was mainly sun flares combined with very dark, threatening clouds. Yes, it was rotten ski weather and it rained and the lower slopes was the stickiest mud ever, combined with ice patches. That’s what the red warning banners were for. I left out the skiers, far left, struggling out of their skis. For more of my stuff go to my portfolio page on direct2artist.
