Come and explore my visual impressions of majestic mountains, deep in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. Journey to the beautiful west coast and ancient forests of British Columbia with me. I will also guide you through the wide open spaces, lakes and hills of the lush Okanagan Valley.
My goal is to paint with a bold and beautiful style the landscapes of Canada. In doing so I am celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday with you! #Canada150

Wilderness Expressions is a series of acrylic paintings created on black gessoed gallery wood panels. There are 10 paintings 24x24x2″ in this starry sky collection for those who love the stars. These images take my viewers and collectors into some of the more hidden and remote adventure trails, lakes and oceans on the west coast …
Light from the night sky traces the desert hills and Okanagan sage. In this painting the soft violets, cobalts and ochres of distant Lavington hills harmonize. Nearer, one can feel the dryness of the ranch land and the coolness of the evening air. Whistling cottonwood trees are changing colour and their gold colours glow like fireflies. This image is the last, tenth painting in a new series by artist Tina Monod called the “Wilderness Expressions”.
Sometimes all you need is a little elevation to get away from it all. Hikes like this one unfold with many layers of beauty. There is no greater feeling than a mountain high, which comes from pushing onwards, climbing higher and trusting in the trail ahead of you. This image is the ninth painting in a new series by artist Tina Monod called the “Wilderness Expressions”.
In my career of building art, community and culture I am grateful for the love and support of family and friends. There is not greater joy than creating and sharing my art with an audience and collectors. I greatly appreciate the galleries listed here helping me forward with new representation of my art.
