I am way behind in posting so I thought I would put all the paintings together that I did while at an Artists Residency at Numtijah Lodge at Bow Lake. Bow Lake is a truly magical place and the lodge has quite a lovely ambiance. I shared this residency with my plein air painting buddy, the talented Patti Dyment -check out her lovely work!!

The fireweed really put on a show this year and made a lovely forground for Crowfoot Glacier.

We took a short drive from Bow Lake one evening and caught the late sun on some peaks. It was threatening rain, as it did all weekend, but it seems we were blessed as it was raining all around us, but never on us!

"Back Country", 12x9" plein air oil on multimedia artboard mounted on panel

This was my last painting for the residency. The sky was overcast and sprinkles came and went. This is not really in the 'back country' as it is at the side of the lake, but the title seemed appropriate. So many wonderful jewels in the Canadian Rockies for hikers to come upon.

Enjoy!

"Lily Pond -Le Vieux Couvent", oil painting by Sharon Lynn Williams


"Lily Pond -Le Vieux Couvent", 12 x 12" oil on mounted Arches oil paper
$575 beautifully framed

This is the last painting I did at the cottage this summer from my photos of France. The lily pond was so full of colour and joy. I hope you can feel the excitement!
Or maybe that is just me being excited because tomorrow my eldest son is getting married to a super wonderful woman, so I am getting a new daughter!! After the wedding we are taking all of her Japanese family to Canmore and Banff for a little sightseeing, and then on Tuesday I am off for 4 days of plein air painting at gorgeous Lake O'Hara -one of the prettiest places to paint in the Rockies, and a personal favorite.
Stay tuned for paintings from the Purcell mountains, Bow Lake, Mount Assiniboine and Lake O'Hara.
Enjoy!

"Need A Ride?" oil painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"Need A Ride?", 12 x 12" studio oil painting on gessoed Arches oil paper
$300 unframed (please note: Price only in effect until painting is framed)
Please click here to purchase

Dreama recently published her take on this scene that we shared at the lavender farm, but honestly I had done this before I saw hers! Good thing too, as I might have been swayed to make mine more like hers :) I think we were all struck by the beauty of this, so it wouldn't surprise me to see it painted by everyone on the trip!
Enjoy!
