    Discovery Room Artist Exhibition – Pat MacBain

    Reflections in Nature

    There are many things which stir the artist’s imagination: myths and mystery, whimsy and wandering. Especially nature.

    Nature offers endless possibilities and challenges to the artist’s eye. When painting on location, what to focus on – the broad vista or the individual tree? And is it to be realistic or interpretive? Monochrome or multi-hued? Big or small? The choices are limitless and so is the joy of creating.

    View more of Pat’s artwork in VanDusen’s Yosef Wosk Library and Resource Centre.
