This painting was based on an old image of St. Peter's, Cape Breton where my roots lie. The image struck me because of it cohesive composition, the large dark masses lead your eyes around the canvas naturally and hold down the image as a concrete form. This allows creative liberty to manipulate other aspects of the painting such as adding repetitive gestures and patterns. Many patterns arrive from visual cues found with in the landscape though others came from external influences such as the reference to Piet Mondrian's tree paintings found in the lower right hand corner. Though it is quite busy it is also balanced, depicting an imaginative maritime landscape.
