Artwork of The Year
The Best Paintings of 2022 Voted by You, Artwork Of The Year.
Thirty-four original acrylic paintings on canvas, that is how many new works I created in 2022. We narrowed this down to four paintings that we thought were the best this year, and then asked you to narrow it down to one painting, selecting Artwork of The Year for 2022. In a year that included contemporary pop realism paintings of canoes on lakes, polar bears, elk, snowy landscapes and people enjoying many different outdoor activities, the stories I was writing on canvas emitted a joy and love for life. These paintings were filled with wonder and a lust for wandering. Some moments influenced by Canadian popular culture and some by the experiences I was having during my travels of the year. There was a nod to The Queen and Nanaimo Bars. Solidarity with Ukraine and the strength and spirit of men and women. I played with creating in place at the Banff Centre and in Maui, Hawaii. In my Victoria BC studio, I was dreaming up narrative’s about my past and future journeys.
Here are four paintings we narrowed the year down to, telling visual stories on canvas. Listed in order of votes received, the number one painting of 2022 as voted by you, is Dreaming Under Northern Lights.
