|Clouds on the Mountains #2|
|Birds over Erickson|
|Kootenay Lake Sunset #2|
Over the years I have done 17 paintings of the west side of the valley, 14 paintings of sunset on the lake and 5 paintings of the east side of the valley. I am happy to say that most of them have sold.
I have used photos of a number of my original paintings to make cards which also sell very well, especially to the tourists during the summer. I have painted a number of other valley scenes but, judging by card sales, they don't have the same appeal.
I rarely paint the same thing twice because I like variety too much but when I paint the valley I always end up with pictures that are subtly different.
