"On Whistler Mountain"

This new watercolour was shown in the recent Scotia Creek Gallery at Millenium Place, Whistler. I was one of 32 Squamish artists taking part in the "Sḵwxwú7mesh - Mother Wind" exhibit.

This is really my first snow painting inspired by recent road trips to Mountain Galleries in Whistler. And I finally  took the Peak to Peak Gondola from Whistler to Blackcomb on the SILVER cabin with the glass floor! I really need to get up into the mountains more often - the whites, the blues, the lavenders.... and all the subtle nuances of warm light and shadows on snow. It needs to be studied to get the real hues - my camera just doesn't do the trick. Well OK it's not the camera - I'm just not a great photographer.
