Summer Dance

15x22 on Primitive Linen

Barbel Smith takes her inspiration from the Canadian landscape much like the Group of Seven did, her style is reminiscent of Lawren Harris. 

I met Barbel on a studio tour and was immediately struck by the sweeping lines and bold colours that drew me into the paintings.
