Call for Entries Accepted Artists
Growing up in the long winters of the Canadian Prairies made me appreciate all of the fleeting experiences of a warm summer. Little by little the birds come home, walks are more frequent, and the daily menu is lighter and brighter. Watermelon seeds become more common than empty soup bowls, and the summer salad becomes the main course.
“Salad” is a representation of a passing season; a time when we are free from the limitations of winter, and the composition of our food is as light as the way we feel.
Painting with a palette knife as well as brushes helps to achieve a style that is not precise. When I began painting, my pieces fit into the category of realism. This changed when I observed how my choice of subjects transform before my eyes – usually by wilting or migrating. Painting loosely better represents my surroundings and the constant changes we experience in the Prairies.
