Many times as an artist I get stuck on subject matter to paint – and since I like to inspire , I in turn need that one idea that jump starts my creative juices.
Since I paint on different mediums – canvas, wood, slate – actually any surface – I try to match the subject matter to the size of surface I have – this last while it has been slate – pieces off old barns – that was given to me by fellow artist Morris Young – and being that it is Canada’s 150th birthday celebration I have been concentrating on Canadian beauty. Repeats I do – because people love our birds, love our Maple Leaf, love our wildlife and natural beauty – and in general feel the warmth of our country whether they live here or are visiting. That’s what inspires me .
Janet will be in the gallery next on August 25th!
