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.
These paintings of the great continental divide are both a mapping and a collection of Canadian Landscapes. Painted with acrylics on to gallery canvas 24×24″ and 16×20″ with a depth of 1.5″, each painting has a painted edge of warm earth tone and is ready for hanging. These paintings explore some of Canada’s most beautiful national parks and Unesco world heritage sites. Each mountain image explores the Canadian Rockies from Revelstoke and Yoho National Parks, in British Columbia… to Banff National Park, Alberta. This series by Canadian artist and designer Tina Monod is about mountain culture, elevation and the beauty of mountains in Canada.
In total there are 11 images in this series. Already these are embracing the change of seasons and the beautiful colours which make the early falling snow, budding trees, colourful leaves and distant skies appear warm or cooler. Currently Mount Revelstoke and Yoho National Parks are part of the series; as well as the area between Lake Louise and Banff National Park.
Climbing mountains and painting mountains is an important part of this series. In life we climb many mountains, set goals, achieve them and then look back on just how far we have come. I hope that as you climb these mountains, you will gain a sense of beauty and elevation which makes living in Canada and exploring Canada’s majestic national parks such a joy.
Cathedral Mountain glows brightly, even from its peak as the sun begins to set. Snow in the upper elevations is luminescent. The glacier is beautiful and the surrounding area so scenic. Clouds unfurl and begin to settle around the summit for the night. They uniquely reflect part of this brightness creating a spectacular evening sky. This place is ideal for stargazing.
Cathedral is magical in the pink light. Dusk softens the vibrant colours and surroundings with deeper shadowed greens and violet shades. The upper valley, larch meadow and plateau are lovely. This is the Great Divide! Wapta Lake sparkles and adds a charm to this impressive view. The glacial lake is formed from Cataract Brook and Blue Creek in Yoho National Park, and is the source of the Kicking Horse River. The word Wapta means “running water” in the Cree language (Stoney Indian).
My brushes ascend and descend adding last light to the landmarks, which are about to sink into the velvety shadows. There is a true feeling of freedom here, reaching upwards into the sky. The waves below are playful in their motion. Movement is an important energy in this painting. Not only does it connect to the energy of this beautiful landscape, it links all the elements with a nice rhythm. Green blue glacier colours of the rockies tell us that we are at the continental divide, between Alberta and British Columbia. This area has been an important leg in many journeys, throughout my life.
