Harry Stooshinoff

Harry Stooshinoff March 24 acrylic on paper 8.25"x7.25" 2011

Harry Stooshinoff is a Canadian artist who derives endless inspiration from his local surroundings "just north of Lake Ontario". He says that working small encourages spontaneity and experimentation, and will even incorporate collage elements for bold effect. 

Day after day Stooshinoff comes up with perfect little compositions, his sense of design seemingly effortless. His colors are rich but true to the natural world, and he is so good at showing the movement of a hill or of wind-driven clouds.

Stooshinoff's skies are almost always as important as the landscape. Here is a painting with a dark sky that throws the snow into beautiful relief:

In honor of Elizabeth Wilson's passionate interest in the subject of changeable skies, for the rest of September we'll be looking at landscape paintings with a strong emphasis on the heavens. If you have an image of a painting, drawing or photograph with a focus on the sky (not your own work please) and a few thoughts you'd like to share, please email me and I'll set up a post for you.
