Moonrise Over The Boreal Forest, Northern Ontario
Moonrise Over The Boreal Forest, Northern Ontario
Moonrise Over The Boreal Forest was painted in 2012. It is a piece where the initial idea came from a train trip in the early 1990's that Mark took from Halifax to Vancouver, not long after he arrived in Canada as an immigrant from the UK. This painting comes from memory after seeing the moon rising over the Canadian Shield of Northern Ontario in early spring, as the train made its way West from Toronto. Oil on mounted birch 36x48 inches. Shipping included.
Price: $3,200.00



Spring, Myra Falls, Strathcona Provincial Park
Spring, Myra Falls, Strathcona Provincial Park
Oil on supported birch, 24x36 inches. Unframed original 2015. In the Spring of 2015 Mark made the long journey from Nova Scotia to Vancouver Island where, for two weeks, he lived out of a car with his friend Michael. It was the old growth forests that Mark was drawn too and the highlight being the incredible Strathcona Provincial Park. This work is a part of that journey, the thundering Myra Falls.

Morning, Gros Morne Interior, Near Hardys Pond, Newfoundland
Morning, Gros Morne Interior, Near Hardys Pond, Newfoundland
This 16x20 inches oil on mounted birch from 2014 comes from a wilderness expedition taken by Mark and two friends into the back country of Gros Morne National Park. They hiked close to 80km over 4 days in the late summer of 2005. Mark says, "It was a time when I learned how insignificant I was, sleeping miles from the next human being in the middle of Gros Morne showed me this, but at the same time I felt so very connected to the nature around me." Shipping included.
