Nature Inspired

Colourful blooms of the Rocky Mountains backcountry were the inspiration for Erik Visser’s new Wildflowers abstract series. Since nature provided the motivation, Visser eschewed his prized acrylics in favour of walnut oil based paints, a medium “as pure and natural as possible.” He also exchanged his pallet knives and scrapers for brushes. Visser’s artistic routine was further challenged by the longer drying times this new technique required, but the results are stunning. See for yourself at the Apr 10-May 10 Wildfowers exhibit at the Jasper-Yellowhead Museum. — Lisa Stephens
