A painting inspired by shattered glass…

shattered glassThis summer I was at an outdoor art show when my fellow artist’s grid wall fell over and a 16″ x 20″ framed print hit the ground and broke.  I looked down at the glass and saw the dancers.  Before the glass was cleaned up, I took a photo of it.  When I returned to my studio, I used the shattered glass photo for inspiration for this painting, which is titled “DANCE”.  (14″ x 18″ acrylic on board $575)

A New Venture with Blank Slate Inlays



Have you ever wanted a piece of art for your stove backsplash, in your shower, or on your floor?  Blank Slate Inlays is now rendering my work as tile inlays.  Visit their website to learn more about their great product.

My next show is in April on Vancouver Island

Rather than putting the bison in the land, I chose to put the land in the body of the bison.

ONE WITH THE LAND / 16″ x 20″ / acrylic on canvas

Six Traits in Unity: Exploring the Shapes of Canada West

February 25th to March 15th Opening Reception: Saturday March 1st 1:00pm to 4:00pm
For the past six years, Bernadette McCormack has made the summer road trip from her home on Vancouver Island to her roots in Alberta. Her travels take her through a beautiful corner of our country, where she is inspired by the land that unfolds as she drives.
In this body of work, Bernadette honors six distinct landscapes of the Canadian West in her dynamic style, from the wheat fields of Alberta’s prairies to the starfish of the Pacific Northwest. Using vibrant colors to express the emotions she feels in these beautiful environments, Bernadette shares her unique perspective of Western Canada.
Andy McCormack will be providing live music at the artist reception.
