Message in a Bottle 60"x36" Oil on Canvas


…. living in wine country, we often hear “bring more wine” from those outside the Okanagan, in this painting Message in a Bottle notice the attention to detail and perhaps Dave Watland’s sense of humor. “It is nature’s wealth of colour, shapes and composition that inspires me to paint.”

Wapiti Winter Wonderland-12"x36" Oil on Canvas

This paintings was inspired by a road trip to Alberta with my daughter, we took the Yellowhead back and just north of Jasper we saw a herd of Elk (Wapiti) and I got a few good reference pictures. It was a great weekend with my daughter and a inspiration to my painting.
