North Saanich, Canada
Nova Scotia Coast
Mixed Media - Acrylic On Hardboard
Painting was done on hardboard with acrylic. Never having painted rocks before this painting definitely felt like a challenge. Of course it was one of my favorite places to visit, the coastline near Peggy�s Cove, Nova Scotia I couldn�t resist at least trying my hand at a painting of that wonderful seascape. The clouds and the water were truly dancing that day.
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 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.
