WHERE TOM WENT, an original oil painting, is a tribute to the iconic painting of Tom Thomson and his wonderful use of colour and texture. Here the abstracted landscape is further enhanced with an unique addition. The artist has incorporated a weathered piece of wood worked into the painting as the shoreline. The spalted lines in the wood are carried in paint into the canvas, depicting the lines on the sand left behind by the waves. This is a gorgeous statement piece, and one of just a few that the artist has created with the aged wood.
Size: 36" x 26" Due to size of the work, it is available at the gallery only, Cedar Lake Studios, 27 Ainslie St. N. Cambridge, ON
The Artist: Jean Marshall, an oil painter born and raised in Newfoundland, Canada has not forgotten her love (and fear) of the rocky coastal waterways and the rugged cliffs, the poetic streams and the little waterfalls. She is one of the original members of the Plein Air Adirondack School of Painters founded by Publisher, Eric Rhoads. An invitation from the Publisher to join the group of masters and their friends took her work beyond the studio to the mountains & valleys of New York. Jean has taken classes from numerous renowned painters. She won the Bronze Award 2015 and the Curators Award 2019, at the Homer Watson Gallery and Museum. One of her paintings recently won a global competition and was subsequently published in an art book. Her work is collected across North America, and most recently a piece was sent to the Yukon.
Jean always using the best supplies that hold archival quality for her collectors and their families to own through generations because as Jean says “Art has meaning beyond words, filled with so many stories to see. It’s documentation.”
