“Sanctuary” by Canadian landscape artist, Barbara DeMott
Barbara DeMott about “Sanctuary”: Over ten years ago I donated a lovely property as an “eco- gift” to the Canadian government. This property had given me so much over the years and I wanted to share the love. I built a small pavilion from where I could watch the life of the pond. Enjoying a cup of tea or simply meditate.
For this work, Barbara used a variety of techniques including building surface texture with gesso and sand, and cold wax. She also used wiping techniques to reach the effects she was looking for.
“Sanctuary” does not require framing and is ready to hang.
In order to understand her subject matter at an intuitive level, Barbara has studied Chinese brush painting and calligraphy for years. Only after Barbara studied Japanese tea ceremony and Bharata Natyam dance with noted artists from China, she was rewarded with the Chinese name, “Baolan”. Barbara DeMott now uses this name to sign her paintings (see image).
