Arbutus Love

Acrylic, 2007

Painting of the beautiful Arbutus tree native to Vancouver Island and Canada's west coast. This painting is an early work by the artist and is heavily textured with layers of paint. This piece is framed in a complimentary wood frame with Arbutus-like colouring of burnt sienna and orange. The inner part of the frame is 22-carat gold, which lights the painting on fire. A beautiful piece that has been held in the artists' collection for many years.
