Once Upon A Time In The West

Once Upon A Time In The West is a Landscape, Acrylics on stretched canvas. Fine Art Original, Ready for hanging
Size: 12X12 inches
Description: “Mother Mary your children are slaughtered,
Some of you mothers ought to lock up your daughters,
Who’s protecting the innocents,
Heap big trouble in the land of plenty,
Tell me how we’re gonna do what’s best,
You guess once upon a time in the west.”

Painting is in my blood. My grandfather and great aunt Hazel in Kitchener were amateur painters in both oil and water colours. My two brothers, Michael and David, are galleried artists in Ontario. I’m a retired book publisher and school teacher (learning and communications skills) since 2000.

I began dabbling with paints in 2017 while living in Philippines. Now I am doing serious work which I want to share with others. I live in British Columbia, Philippines and Maine.

I paint portraits, landscapes, and create collages. Spontaneous and by commission. My paintings have been included in shows at the Kariton Gallery/Abbotsford BC, Reach Gallery/Abbotsford, and private showings in Bacolod City, Philippines, Kennebunkport/Maine. My paintings are in private collections in Canada, USA, Italy, Brazil, and Philippines.

I find myself studying and using the styles of many artists. I’ve learned so much about painting by studying and working in a style made famous by Amedeo Modigliani (Italian 1880-1920).

As a beginning painter I find I need to try many styles until I discover what style works best for me. Also I am aware of the tastes in art of my friends and other people.
