Welcome

Welcome to Monod Art & Design

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

Sing Me Home

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”.

Mountain High

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”.
