This image is based on a photo I took in Fernie,British Columbia. It depicts a church set against the backdrop of the famous Three Sisters mountains

If you have not visited Fernie, perhaps it is because you haven’t yet noticed the Fernie-shaped hole in your heart. I think that we all have one. When you get there, you’ll see what I mean.

With this image, I celebrate the Fernie community - - outdoor enthusiasts, miners, displaced  Calgarians, escapees, the retired and the reinvigorated - who gather in this valley crook, amidst genuine wilderness, to be the sort of person that you just can’t be in a City.

Interesting this about this piece: the work is largely hand painted, but with a twist. Employing Newtonian physics, where for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, I have designed  this so that as the paint brush lowers to meet the canvas, the canvass rises  up to meet the paintbrush.

 Enjoy
