Art and Travel

One of Greg’s passions is travel to interesting destinations, and his other passion is his art, so it seemed reasonable to combine the two. During the week Greg will be working in a variety of mediums, including pencil, watercolour and pastel as he tries to capture the spirit and place of the many fascinating destinations that he has had the opportunity to visit.

 

 

 

 

 

 Echos of the LandscapeAndreaAiR

There is growing evidence that being in, near, or on the water reduces stress.  People are drawn to waterscapes. We react emotionally to paintings including water scenes and express feeling calm and joy.
Andrea’s offering is a window with a view that inspires to pause, disconnect and be present.

ExpressionsAliveSH

Silvija’s inspiration comes in visualizing the lines, shapes, and colours that can be derived from landscape and floral subjects. Broad brush strokes characterize her interest in abstraction, while preserving a recognizable subject. Silvija will be working primarily with acrylics in an expressive approach to painting.

SharonKAiRSharon Kirsh art focuses on the classical elements of earth, water and fire, and how they describe our experiential sensations of the natural world. Beginning with meditation, and integrating poetic metaphors that relate emotions to the natural world, Sharon will be painting with thick transparent layers in cold wax and oil on birch panels and paper, then enhancing a rich textural surface by digging lines and scraping, revealing what lies beneath; creating a history.
