"Atmosphere, earth and water are the elements which inspire my artistic practice. My oil paintings depict the constant transformation of the natural world. The creative process begins in nature through plein air studies, sketches, and experiences which build the foundation for my studio work."
Canadian artist Rosemarie Armstrong has been painting for over four decades. Her seascape and landscape paintings reflect her artistic soul and her professional caliber. The masterful use of light, colour and composition is deliberate, her process of layering the oil paint, results in an illuminated quality of atmosphere, earth and water. Rosemarie's paintings are representational yet imaginative; they celebrate movement, textures and images abundant in nature but often unseen due to their fleeting nature. The opportunity to witness nature's majesty draws Rosemarie to explore Canada's majestic and often remote locations.
Contrasting themes of turbulence, serenity, darkness and illumination underscore Rosemarie's emotional connection to our environment. She believes that through artists and their work, people can envision the best of our world and the human spirit.
