"Painting is just another way of keeping a diary." – Pablo Picasso

This online collection of painterly works represents numerous talents whose art practice continues to appear on our gallery walls.

The act of creating fine art is usually a solitary process; one of time spent gathering subject material, digesting the landscapes witnessed, sketched, photographed, traveled in & experienced.

The techniques used in the creative process are as diverse as these artists: a 15th C. method of layering oil paint and varnish, squeezing tubes of 21st C. acrylics onto a makeshift palette to blend the same colour as a glacial lake, taking flight with experienced pilots to get you close enough to capture dawn light reflecting off snow-covered mountain faces, extensive study of colour theory & using sketch books to create the perfect compositions to plot out how those hues will translate on canvas.

We are privileged to share the artistic visions created by these talented Canadian artists. Every day.

K Neil Swanson

Deeply rooted in K. Neil Swanson’s painting is the symbolic nature of his work, with elements of past, present, and the future. Ever present in his works are a sense of place and a deep spirituality.

Like an iceberg afloat in the ocean, there is the feeling when viewing his art, that there is something below the surface. It may be hidden: like a feather fallen across the snow or wolf shadows among a small group of deer. On mountain and glacier, over the wind dried plains, the skies move with energy and color; crystal clear nights with a monumental moon, and stars illuminating earth and all below. Ancient stone circles, still found in many Alberta sites, become energy circles in a story Swanson spins on canvas.  

Neil is a previous Best New Artist at the Calgary Stampede & Exhibition Art Salon. His work has been featured in International Artist Magazine, Master Painters of the World Canada Showcase, as well as Canadian Country Cowboy Magazine, and Alberta Views Magazine.
