“Going To Sheep River”, by Canadian landscape artist, Donna Winn
Living in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, inspiration is all around Canadian landscape artist, Donna Winn. An artwork coming to fruition is often related to either what she observes or how/what she feels emotionally. Textures, values, lines, and shapes are chosen depending on what the painting is about; communicating a specific (cultural) message or a certain feeling in need of being expressed. Winn: “I translate my observations into line and colour.”
Donna Winn on “Going To Sheep River”: “While making my way past Turner Valley I found a spot that spoke to me. Getting my sketch down and taking it back home to let my imagination run wild.”
“Life is not always as it seems. I imagine going down a road that lets me feel something magical. Something that is beyond reality. The joy is endless if you have chosen it to be.
I had fun with the colour and the different shapes and marks. And all I had to do was look a different way.”
“Going To Sheep River” is painted on a deep canvas and does not require framing. Wired on the back and ready to hang.
