City of Gold

City of Gold.
Acrylic on canvas
30"x30"x1.5"
The sides are painted so this is ready to hang and does not need framing.
Available at SaatchiArt.


I painted this painting while subletting a house with a studio on Salt Spring Island. It is one of the Southern Gulf Islands here in British Columbia. It was a peaceful month of retreat and my time was my own.

It was great to have the space to create larger works. This is one of the first ones I did there. I enjoyed exploring texture with tools for scaping and moving the paint. I also used printing and splashing techniques as the piece took on a life of its own.  It turned out to have so much energy and to reflect and communicate the feel of the city.
