Ardent Heart is representative of the rugged landscape of the Canadian Shield. The painting is not of a specific place, but is based on the experience of being and absorbing this environment as I hike or paddle these areas. This pieces captures the energy, the movement of grass and trees and the bright clear air of the north. Ardent Heart is painted with multiple layers of oil paint mixed with cold wax, as well dry pigment, oil stick and graphite. Ardent Heart is unframed and ready to hang. Price includes HST.
