A majestic view of a wintry English landscape with a soaring, bright blue sky is made more expansive by the perspective of looking across a valley in this 3 feet square oil painting on canvas. Composed in a classic zig zag, snow covered fields draw the viewer into the impasto landscape of sun lit yellow and green spring trees and distant, atmospheric blue mountains. This painting is unframed. Andrew graduated with his MFA from Newcastle University in northeast England. He has exhibited widely with 27 solo shows in the UK and Canada. He has received two Ontario Arts Council awards and won landscape competitions including the Laing National Landscape Competition and the Lawrence Atwell Award both in the UK. Andrew's work is in corporate, public and private collections including that of actor Mel Gibson and Her Majesty The Queen in Right. His work was featured on the cover of the Canadian band Tragically Hip's album Day for Night.
