Banff Sojourns

“Sentimental Journeys” is a series about a love for mountains. These new mountain culture paintings are a continuation from the series “Mapping the Great Divide”. The work is consistently vibrant in nature. “Wilderness Expressions” was the original spark for these images of altitude and elevation. What began with nocturne paintings, mountains and stars to wish upon, has lead me to paint uniquely and boldly beautiful, Canadian landscapes.

“Art is compassionate. It’s about life… loving, forgiving, nurturing. It’s about nature and connection. An unconditional love for the earth, the mountains. Every brush stroke is a flow of kindness, adding value to the moment.” – Tina Monod.

Sentimental Journeys

Sentimental Journeys is a collection of alpine landscapes painted with acrylics on to gallery wrapped canvas. Paintings are 24×24″ and 36×36″ with a depth of 1.5 – 1.75″ and a granite gray painted edge, ready for hanging. These paintings explore trails, both nostalgic and new. Their locations will forever be sentimental and special. This landscape series by Canadian artist and designer Tina Monod is about the beauty close and far, near and within Banff National Park and surrounding areas.

Purchase the Calendar

This year I listened to those of you who felt there was not enough room on your walls for collecting more art and many of you loyal fans were interested more so in a print than an original painting. Here’s a great way to purchase and enjoy several small prints and all in one small set with a new painting each month. Some of these pieces were juried into some very special art exhibitions, events and art galleries this year with noteworthy artists and Canadian artist associations. It has been an honour to share my art and it is my pleasure to offer this calendar valued at just $24.95 plus HST.

It was not easy narrowing the most popular paintings from the past year as there have been so many. As you know, a beautiful space begins from the ground up and ends with noteworthy art on the walls, to enhance and compliment every home and office decor. Like the great outdoors my art is vibrant in nature, boldly beautiful.

Mystic Cradles

Mount Ishbel, Sawback Range in Banff National Park, Alberta

North of the Bow Valley Parkway and east of Johnston Canyon in Alberta, life grows in the cradles of the Canadian Rockies. Mount Ishbel is at the heart of this and something rare to behold. These mystic cradles are often admired at a distance and up close. There are so many interesting angles here for an artist to sketch and paint.

Back in 1926, this mountain inspired Group of Seven painter Lawren Harris to create a majestic painting of strong geometrical elements. The results were fascinating, spiritual and almost mystical. Many individuals have appreciated and loved these distant peaks. Thirty years later, Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald of Great Britain named this mountain after his eldest daughter Ishbel, in 1956. Just last fall on November 25, 2016 the painting “Mountain Forms” by Harris sold at auction for $11.2 M with Heffel Fine Art. These moments in history are as amazing as this great Canadian landscape.

Wider brush strokes, like bigger steps help me to explore these rugged peaks freely. To emphasize strength I have painted with long, diagonal brush strokes. This vibrant place is more than rock and granite. A paynes gray underpainting and edge give a nice feeling of stone throughout the piece. Some of this gray wraps around the front of the canvas. As a result, there is a feeling of a page being turned in a book. Crevices in the rock face could be shadows, but become creative spaces for introducing bright jewels of colour. I add these to emphasize light and form.
