When you create a painting and you hold an intention in your heart, beautiful things can happen. I painted this for my partners grandmother. It is my favorite place in Grand Teton National Park, Shcwabacher Landing. If you arrive here around 6am, you get perfectly still water, a stunning reflection, and perhaps first light on the Tetons.
Dear Skier friends!
Here is a collaboration I did with J Skis earlier this year. They are currently on pre-order at jskis.com (you may have to search my name on the site or wait until they are finished). I’m not much of a skier but maybe this will get me to test out my skiing skillz, if I got ‘em! Thank you @j_skis they look really great and I can’t wait for my pair. #jskis
No matter how much preplanning I do for a piece sometimes (well most of the time) I end up changing part of that plan midway through. 🤷🏻♀️ If you’ve been following my stories you’d know that was the case for this work in progress painting. I had initially painted the grass gold, but it just wasn’t popping enough against the neon orange tree so I decided to repaint the area neon purple. Definitely getting the contrast I was looking for now! 💥 I also decided to add some roots to the tree. 😊 Next up are the trees in the background. This particular scene is one I get to enjoy in my backyard, so I’m really excited to share it with you. When the sun is setting there is a patch of trees that almost look lavender in the color, and I really wanted to capture them in a painting. 👩🏻🎨 This piece is the 2nd one for my new series which will feature neon and metallic landscapes, like my latest mountainscape piece. If you’d like to see a progress shot of this painting at an earlier stage scroll down a bit on my profile or check out my story highlights. 😊 Hope you’re all enjoying your Sunday!! ✨
Live + Love Art!

Today’s featured artist is Rosalie Olson. Rosalie is a Canadian artist born and living in Winnipeg and an apprentice of Gordon Harrison. She works in watercolour, acrylic and mixed media. She expresses her creative spirit through an experimental mixed media painting process that involves layers and layers of blended yet bold colour combinations and intriguing textural marks. Her work intentionally invites a different emotional response when viewed up close than from afar. Rosalie is passionately drawn to create art that reflects her awe of the beauty of nature and through colour and texture, strikes a poetic balance between expressionism and abstract art.
Displayed at the gallery are beautiful examples of both her oil and acrylic/mixed media creations. In particular, her painting titled “A Change of Weather” – 20h x 20w in a stunning one piece 2" espresso floater frame measuring 24"h x24"w, is a wonderful example of how she has captured the beauty of our Canadian landscape.
Rosalie, along with fellow apprentices Jane Magee, Marie-France L’Ecuyer and Tracey Kucheravy, has many other beautiful works on display at the gallery until the end of September. Stop by for a visit - you won't be disappointed you did!
