WHEN THE WINTER SEASON EMBRACES WHISTLER, LIKE MAGIC, SHE GRACEFULLY REVEALS HER MAJESTIC MOUNTAINS, ADORNED IN SCENIC GRANDEUR, ELEGANTLY SET AGAINST THE BLUE HORIZON

 

 

 

 

 

“The gliding descent gives the impression of the ski slopes which whistler is all about.  One can imagine oneself skiing down the sides of the mountains in the same flow that the painting is moving; this gives a very free and dynamic vision of Whistler. The stark white against the luminous blue, the reflection from the sky in the snow– creating a natural harmony with nature”  Paul Ygartua

 

 

WHISTLER HISTORY

The Coast Salish First Nations people inhabited the land around Whistler for many thousands of years, hunting and gathering and living a nomadic lifestyle long before European settlers arrived.The Whistler area was often a waypoint for First Nation trading routes between the Squamish and Lil’wat Nations, as it was rich with wildlife and resources. At one time, tens of thousands of Coast Salish First Nations people lived, traded and thrived in the areas between Vancouver, Howe Sound and Lillooet.

In fact, some of the hiking routes between Howe Sound and Deep Cove (east of Vancouver) are the traditional routes travelled by the Coast Salish First Nations peoples.

The award-winning Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre in Whistler is a beautiful space to learn about the history of First Nations people and how they lived and continue to live on the land. Rich culture, different perspective on landscape, well worth a visit.

THE MAJESTIC BEAUTY OF THE RAINFOREST

“I have  worked in many different mediums and styles, exploring the varied landscape of Canada.  The magnificent wilderness regions have a dramatic impact on all artists.  

I want to express myself in a new style, approaching the subject with bold emotion, reflecting a majestic landscape which has captivated artists since Emily Carr and the Group of Seven.  I believe the power of the subject, the boldness and vastness of the scenery lends to the large bold strokes of color, plentiful palette strokes capturing the essential feeling of the power of nature — the mountains, water and trees. The offering of nature in her natural beauty with a diversity of a tremendous variety of forest, with a multitude of different species where nature opens the door on the natural world.” 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NATURE

CAPRICE     

Solemn the silences pervading the solitudes 

Rocky ramparts rearing on high

Slumbering snows whitely sun silvered

Whispering winds wandering by

Soliloquizing soulfully with passionate sigh

Wistful, watching the lovely form

Capriciously curving caressing each peak

Billowing beautifully bewitching all

Willfully winning without words to speak

Careering clouds colorfully warm

Leaving lost loves to languish and to storm.

THE PLANNING

The glory of the sunrise 

As it coloratures the morn

The splendor of the golden god

As he soars speedily thru space

The wonder of the sunset

With pomp the tired day erase 

The solemn darkness of the night

Anticipates the day unborn.
