Canadian artist Pat Service grew up surrounded by the rugged beauty of the BC landscape—forests, sea and sky. In this, one of her earlier landscape paintings Service has captured a view of the sea and sky from a rocky shoreline. The subtle soft blues of the sky seem to melt into the sea—the rocks defined by brown, black and white hues. It is a peaceful scene.
“Living close to nature for the first 12 years of my life indelibly imprinted on me an identity with trees, fields, creeks, lakes, dirt, rocks, the sun, the sky, gardens, plants, flowers, roads, and so on. Every time I start a new painting I am attempting to honour and seal that connection. “Pat Service
