I hesitated to post this, as it is not my own work but rather a study or "copy" of a Lawren Harris work titled Northern Painting 25...
I realized that as a self taught artist, I pushed myself to learn techniques, but it wasn't without a lot of frustration and often feeling I was wasting precious time going over and over a square inch piece of canvas trying to "get it right". Though there is definite value to that, I decided to try something different for my learning and looked for a style I gravitate to and copied it for the sole purpose of a learning exercise. What I found is that it forced my eyes, brain and hand to work together at the same pace instead of my unskilled hand frustratingly trying to keep up with what my eyes saw and my brain perceived!
My personal style will always be my own, but I am thankful for those who have gone before us to inspire!! #lawrenharris#groupofseven#inspired#northernpainting#trees#artstudies#canadianartist#canadaart#island

I LOVE CULTURE! and #CulturalDays is an annual three-day event featuring engaging #FREE community activities full of it. This year has an exciting mixture of #events , #food , #art and #culture brought to you by our many great partners.

The Group of Seven were Canadian artists who captured various landscapes throughout Canada and turned them into timeless art work. The @mcmichaelgallery commissioned Jean Larrivee (the man who started Canadian guitar making) and six of his former apprentices to build a guitar that drew influences from each of The Group of Seven artists, and an eighth guitar that was a collaboration of the seven guitar makers. A truly inspiring and incredible exhibition representing Canadian art, history, and guitar making. #canada#guitar#guitarcollection#bespoke#acousticguitar#art#woodworking#groupofseven#painting#happiestplaceonearth#sundayfunday
