Autumn At French River
Mixed Media - Photography
October is a lovely time to visit Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada, and to drive over the Cabot Trail which encircles the northern part of the Island and encloses Cape Breton Highlands National Park. The hills become a blaze of color as the leaves of the hardwood trees turn to all shades of gold,reds and orange. All along the Trail are cozy homes like this one at Frendch River, on the Eastern side of the Island, nestled in a grove of trees with an inviting curving driveway and the autumn hills as a backdrop.
A little about me:
My name is Janet but I go by Jann, and I am originally from Ontario, Canada and have lived on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, since 1985.
I love the seacoast and mountains, so many of my photos are from British Columbia, Alberta, Vancouver Island, Nova Scotia, Cape Breton Island. My main photo themes are sea, coastal,villages, mountains, trees, lakes, waterfalls, flowers, nature,wildlife, birds, animals, landscapes, sunsets, and the great National Parks of Canada such as Jasper,Banff, Waterton, Cape Breton Highlands, Yoho, Glacier, Kootenay,Mt. Robson, Strathcona and others.
In the art world, I was initially trained as a Commercial Artist and Illustrator and eventually explored many other methods of art/style as well as other mediums. I work in pencil, ink, acrylics, watercolor and oil pastels. I have also enjoyed mosaic design and application, floor murals, wall murals, collapsible screens, floor cloths, graphic design. Explored sculpture, ceramics, jewelry, hand painted furniture, refinishing old frames with gold leaf or faux finishes, interior design and interior decorating.
With the advent of digital cameras I came to really enjoy photography both as an artistic expression as well as a foundation for capturing interesting and exciting compositions to be painted later.
My recent creative endeavour was graduating from a certified Cosmetology Program (hairstylist and esthetics) in March 2009.
Id like to build up an email list so I can let you know when Ive posted new work.
