Robert Genn: From the Haven - Gabriola

I find myself returning again and again to look at Robert Genn's artworks.
This particular work, From the Haven: Gabriola, is located in White Rock Gallery. Please click here

As with many of Genn's paintings, this one shows both delightful simplicity and a great palette,

I think what never fails to surprise me in Robert Genn's works is his exciting colour scheme. As a landscape painter, I thrill am intriqued at the variety of colours he uses in his treeline and in the sprighty looseness of his brush strokes.

But even moreso, he has the kind of artistic vision to use the element of surprise, be it an exaggerated play with light, or in this case by the presentation of the great painted beak which overhangs the scene.
