Nature Spirit

A recent trip to Canada inspired this piece. I was blown away by the awe and beauty and uncontrolled majesty of nature when travelling through the wilds of British Columbia, and this painting tries to combine these feelings into a mythical scene. The familiar 'wolf-woman' is back, this time emerging from the lake. She is beautiful and wise, her steely glare reminding us all that she is the boss!  

The mountain scene owes a debt to great native Canadian artists and printmakers that I discovered while out there. I love their bold, bright colours and clean lines.
