Palliser Trail

Kicking Horse River – Yoho National Park, British Columbia

Every landscape is a vision of adventure and has a unique story to tell. The origins of Kicking Horse River begin with a geologist named Sir James Hector. From 1857-1860 he was part of the Palliser Expedition to explore or survey the open prairies and rugged wilderness of western Canada. As the team’s surgeon and geologist, James played an essential role in exploring new routes for the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) and discovering many new species of plants.

History tells us that in 1858 he was kicked by his packhorse at this beautiful river, high up in the Canadian Rockies of Southeastern British Columbia. Kicking Horse has attracted many explorers ever since. This painting is named “Palliser Trail” to honour the expedition and renew that sense of wonder… a feeling of something more, just down the path and around the river’s bend.

This river adds balance to a composition of sky, mountain and forest. Clouds in the top left rush in, sending a cool mountain breeze down the valley – to parallel the moving water. There is an easy flow from the mountains to river and from there life blossoms outwards. The river bank is vibrant in energy and feng shui. It is lush and inviting with rainbow colours and the brushwork is free flowing adding clarity. Freedom, balance and pure potential are strong emotional elements in this work of original art.
