In an effort to keep some type of audience - I feel that some people need to see the different aspects of my movement through art over the years. I received this first image above from a friend who had kept this drawing I did when I was around 12 years old - I actually remember doing the drawing... and later I did this oil pastel of my Aunt Pauline and Uncle Bill's Dogs while I was doing my degree at Western. What a difference time makes and my focus on details of each of these artworks. Below I also did my type of Landscape where I loved the close up details of the landscape and made them look like jewels of the earth (which they are) and the image beside it of my first abstracted landscaped structured with cut and ripped canvas adhered to board. This was a different way of working with the usual materials and in the way I worked but still detailed in how I approached my painting or art making.
(more info below)
In a sense my landscapes are still a jumble of objects in the landscape (the canvas to me) and I am painting each area like I painted each area above in the jewelled painting. The before and after photos can really show the amount of work and detail that each painting has.... below the last two images show an artwork in progress - please check my website to see the final image which will show up in the Impressionist-Landscape Gallery of this website. I hope you like this throw-back and view of what I have been up to over the years. Kim Wilkie
