Description:My Sheep River location is west of Longview, Alberta.
Artist's Comments: I could paint directly from my photographs and sketches, but I avoid imposing a boundary around myself by using a winter palette to transform a summer riverside pathway into a stream. I "block bust" out of limiting myself by revolving my colour palette, style, and use of materials. Sheep River #2 represents my effort at removing the burden of expectation, and delimiting myself too closely.
