French River Rapids - Revisited

French River Rapids - Revisited
Acrylic  18" x 24"

When we were living in Atikokan I had the opportunity to retrace the foot steps of painter Paul Kane. This is a section of the French River rapids in Quetico park where Paul Kane produced his painting in 1845. It was quite a thrill to walk on the trail that has been used for hundreds of years.

Atikokan Biomass Plant

Atikokan Biomass Plant
Acrylic 24" x 36"

This was a fun painting to do. I had the opportunity to work on site during the construction of the Biomass Conversion in Atikokan, Ontario and because I like to paint the world around me, this was one of the results.

Little Falls in Winter - Wendy Wood

Little Falls in Winter
16" x 20" Acrylic
While working in Atikokan I was able to get to this spot quite a few times and knew that I wanted to paint it. It is located very close to town and easy to get to.

22" x 28"


This painting was inspired by the poem Elemental by Ron Evans. My favourite part.

"and this place was where

a few dared to wander

a world whose words are spoken

in a silence broken only

by the dialogue

of two souls"

This place does exist.

'Winter Light'

18" x 24"


What can I say. It is all about the light in winter and the patterns that are created in the snow.

'Spring Melt' Lynn Canyon, B.C.

16" x 20" $450

This spot is at the bottom of the Lynn Canyon, British Columbia, upstream of the suspension bridge. I was there in 2009, the year Vancouver had lots of snow. It was surreal to walk there with all of the lush green and more than a foot of snow. There was a glow about the place.

Ravine Light

'Ravine Light' acrylic 36"x36"       sold
There is something about being in the forest just as the sun is setting. Light is thrown around in unexpected spots, and it glows. This ravine is beside our house. I am very fortunate to be able to walk 5 minutes from my door and get all the inspiration I need to paint.
