“Frozen Rose Hips”

“Frozen Rose Hips”, 2013, oil on panel, 6″x6″, sold, private collection.

When the first real cold snap hit Whitehorse last fall and the temperature dipped to -30 C the rose bushes around my cottage froze sold, including these rose hips from last year.

Last fall shortly after I had moved to The Yukon Territory I went for a hike on Tally Ho Mountain with friends. The ice was so beautiful and the snow hadn’t arrived in earnest yet. A new form of water to try to capture!

“Mia, Yukon River”

New painting hot off the easel! “Mia, Yukon River”, oil on panel, 6″x12″.

It is available at Abbozzo Gallery in Toronto, Ontario.

The environment is present, continually here. The light, the temperature, this river, all are hypnotic and the transitory nature of all of these elements is palpable every day. The Yukon River in particular tends to hold many people in its spell.
