Landscapes

Tekarra Lodge
Tekarra Lodge by Jennifer Conneely. 14″ x 14″ acrylic on canvas. 2019. I love Jasper with all my heart. I love the historical buildings and the character that oozes from every street and trail. This is the first summer in my children’s lives that we didn’t spend a night camping in Jasper. We didn’t swim in the magical waters of Lake Edith. The rain kept us away.
Maligne Lake Boat House
Maligne Lake Boat House by Jennifer Conneely. 14″ x 14″ acrylic on canvas. 2019. On the way back from Maligne Lake in the summer of 2018, my kids and I saw a black bear on the side of the road. We were the only car in sight. We loved our few moments watching the incredible beast. I was a good year for bears, as the night before we saw a momma grizzly with three little cubs playing near our campsite in the Snaring River overflow. 

Working on a landscape without a building seems odd to me. I love the human interaction with nature, especially when its beautiful. When I was a kid in the woods, I’d always search for hidden remains. I remember being very disappointed at 12 years old, realizing that my acreage house north of Edmonton was the first and only known human settlement on that piece of land. When I moved to London, I desperately wanted to dig a hole in the back garden, just to see whether I could find archeological treasures!

Note: I’m fully aware that the buildings have started creeping into my ‘landscapes’. I can’t help myself!

Lake Louise Reflected

Devonian Gardens after a fight
Devonian Gardens after a fight. 9″x20″ acrylic on canvas. 2019. So, I guess this one cheats a bit because a building snuck in. Nature is the star.
