I enjoy this artist for his paintings of the outdoors. Tranquil and peaceful, which is exactly how I picture Canada.  Composition wise my favorite works of the artist are of branches along the shoreline.  Great contrasts, shapes, and colors in the wood. He also has some great paintings of rust worn locks and aged wood.  The biggest asset of this artist is to create different and exciting textures.
