TANYA BONE

 

Rising in Purples and Golds by Tanya Bone at The Avenue Gallery, a contemporary fine art gallery in Victoria, BC, Canada.

Rising in Purples and Golds
Oil on linen 11 x 14
$2400

 

Nature always awakens me with the colors of springtime, to the joy of painting. The colors of pansies demand a fresh and vibrant palette! Rising in Purples and Golds is an Homage to Richard Schmid. He left all artists whose lives he touched with his singular joy of painting and his credo, ‘Gratitude Always’. – Tanya Bone

EUNMI CONACHER

 

Misty Island
Acrylic on canvas 30 x 48
$3600

 

Since immigrating to Canada 20 years ago, Eunmi has lived in Whistler, Nanaimo, and now calls Sooke home, drawing inspiration from the natural beauty of Vancouver Island.

 

 

 

Our Windy West Coast
Acrylic on canvas 18 x 18
$1300

 

As a contemporary impressionist and expressionist artist, my desire is to create paintings which bring energy to the canvas… more an expression of the mood in the scene rather than a realistic picture. I use depth of colour and form to balance realism and abstract. My hope is that viewers connect emotionally with my paintings in their own way. – Eunmi Conacher

CLAIRE HUANG

 

Walking Down the Alley
Acrylic and oil on panel

A mesmerizing sensation leads to a mysterious adventure while walking down an alley. It slows the senses, holding the peaceful dreamlike feeling that comes… as I drift off into the magic force behind it. – Claire Huang

 

 

 

Vista VIII
Acrylic and oil on canvas 12 x 12
$580

 

This charming little painting is part of my Vista Series and was inspired by a trip to Italy. Mesmerized by the light source in a church, the intangible and uplifting sense I encountered while there suggested an exchange between our inner spiritual world and the meditative physical world around us. – Claire Huang
