Artist In Residence, Banff Springs Hotel

The Banff Springs Hotel was my studio for a week, September 14 to the 21st. Wendy Wacko and The Mountain Galleries hosts their ‘Artist In Residence’ program at the world famous hotel. It was a great opportunity to immures myself in the Rocky Mountain culture, 5 star style….I’m back in my studio now and the bubble has burst… but then the good life can kill you too. There’s ghost in the “Castle of the Rockies’ roaming the ancient hallways, so theyRead more

Plein Air at Lake O’Hara 2015

Lake OHara, Yoho National Park is a magnificent place. Every day was an immersion, an extraordinary adventure, both physically and visually. Your senses intensify as you enter the alpine above the tree lines. You know you won’t get back up there sometime soon and that the window of time to paint is short; It all goes too quickly before we make the long trek back to base camp at Lake O’Hara. In the evenings we sat on the shores of Lake watching theRead more

Oasis Art Symposium 2015

Last weekend I was a guest artist / speaker at the third annual Oasis Art Symposium created by the Kelowna FCA chapter. There was a juried art exhibit, lectures and a discussion panel along with live demos. The day went quickly as the participates were generous of spirit, inquisitive and energetic. I attended a few of such gatherings a year but this one had a wonderful grass roots openness that gave birth to an exchange of ideas. Artist, Janice Robertson gaveRead more

Show and Tell Exhibition in Cabo, Mexico

The Ida Art Victoria Gallery, March 19th 2014: The gallery held a Brent Lynch solo show along with a visual presentation of my work the other night. The attendance enjoyed some appetisers, wine and good conversation before we began the presentation of my artistic exploits and history.

20th annual ‘Painters at Painters’ 2014

It was hard to believe a year had come and gone as I walked into Painters lobby and met artists I hadn’t seen or spoken with since. I’ve been involved for two years and already the P@P gig is a marker for me. That’s the power of this unique event. I am always re-energized after spending time with this powerful group of creative people. Back in the studio once again I reflect on the good crack (conversation) and exchange ofRead more

El Triunfo, An Old Haunt Re-Discovered

I just returned from a town that has haunted me since the early 80’s. When I  first discovered El Triunfo it was a true Mexican ghost town. Nestled in the Serria Laguna Mountains in southern Baja  you’d be hard pressed to run into a living soul back then… just you and the whispering mountain winds bringing voices from the past. The town was old, ancient abandoned 18th century facades of  buildings and haciendas prove it. She was an old silverRead more
