Behind the Brush

C. Foster

Artist / Winnipeg, Canada


I love to create semi-representational landscape and flower paintings in oil, acrylic and watercolour that use expressive colour and light … sprinkled with a touch of whimsy.

I have always been an admirer of the brushstrokes and techniques of Chinese/Japanese art and will often incorporate some line work influenced by those cultures.

Growing up on the Canadian prairies and having a family cottage in Lake of the Woods, Ontario, has provided me with landscapes that offer a kaleidoscope of colours and amazing light to provide never ending inspiration.  This home turf coupled by some pretty amazing world trips have become my painting catalogue.

I spend about 4 to 5  months a year painting in my She-Shed on Mackie’s Island near Kenora.  It’s my favorite place in the world.
