Explored: Vancouver Skyline

Posted on 12th April 2013 in explored

When I was traveling through Europe I was working on a lot of sketches, mostly due to the fact that carrying three small sketch books was a lot easier than buying/selling canvases at every destination I went to. I also sketch a lot.

I was feeling/still am feeling they’re very architecturally aligned, so I’ve been working on a way to unite these sketches with a painting. After posting Hunter’s Game, I had an inquiry from an acquaintance about possibly doing a commission piece of the Vancouver skyline, and this instantly sparked many creative juices and connected the two dots I’ve been trying to find a way to connect for a while.

Vancouver Skyline is a triptych, a three-piece meant to be displayed together, traditionally found in altar pieces with hinges and the lot. These don’t have hinges, and no religious significance, but here they are none-the-less.

Each canvas is 122 x 91.5 cm ( 4 x 3 ft).

Discover Vancouver, Winter 2012

Posted on 16th January 2012 in architecture, wandering

Vancouver is a very fine city. I find that a lot of people from here are animate about how beautiful this city is, which I agree with whole heartedly (I should note here that I know that it’s not only Vancouver that is beautiful, our entire world has sunsets, mountains, prairies, people, population problems, etc. ).  On Wed the 8th of January, 2012 I looked out the window and what did I see? Naturally I got in my car and took photographs as I wandered through the streets.

My aim was East Van, and it’s view of Vancouver. Perhaps some of you may recognize some of these places?

The Seattle Skyline

Posted on 25th September 2011 in architecture, wandering

A few weeks ago, I headed down to Seattle with a friend to renew her VISA, so, this left me with a full day to wander the streets and take pictures!

Clearly, it was a beautiful day, sun was shining off of all the towers, and the people were as interesting as ever (my next post will be the street photography)! My what a beautiful sky!

Now, the architecture of Seattle!
