Join us for an afternoon reception with Jim McFarland on Saturday, March 7, 3-5pm
"North Saanich Marina"
Jim McFarland, "North Saanich Marina".
Jim McFarland's approach to landscape is quite unconventional. He engages with the subject to determine the fundamental forms present, and quickly establishes his point of view. His vision though true to the scene, often renders the subject as abstract masses of colour which harmonize to his tonal palate. A respected member of Victoria's "Al Frescoes" plein air painters, he draws inspiration from the beaches, meadows and woodlands of Vancouver Island. Born in Penticton BC, Jim now lives in Victoria. He is a signature member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and the Society of Canadian Artists. His paintings are in private and corporate collections in Canada and the USA. Jim paints his larger works in the studio but very much enjoys painting on site, en plein air, where he can capture the ever changing but real colours and light of the world around him. You may often see him on the beach, a hill side, or a farmer’s field, painting.
