Painting and Photos: Dwight L. Roth

This painting is on a recycled canvas from the Habitat Restore where I volunteer. I cut the canvas off the frame and turned it over to get a smooth canvas to work on. I staple it back on and soak it to shrink it tight.

This will probably be the last very large canvas I will paint. It takes a lot of work and a lot of standing to get it done. It is hard on my muscles and joints.

  1. My dear Dwight, what an AMAZING job you did with this painting. 🎨 You can tell you put a lot of time and energy into this creation, but when you did that mural commission for Hobbit, I think nothing surprises me by the positive challenges you take on and can do. You need a gallery my friend. Love this! πŸŒ„πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸŽ¨πŸ—»

  2. I love your artistry here, visual and words. The subject is dear to my heart as I live on Vancouver Island and have driven through the Canadian Rockies several times, each time an adventure. I find most artists to be very resourceful. πŸ€©πŸ˜πŸ’•
