This piece is 24 x 30 inches, acrylic on canvas, from 2002. The most common question I get from people is “what are those black lines”? They are power lines alongside the highway. The bottom right side triangular shape is the shoulder of the highway with the white painted line. Humanity is added to the equation instead of unspoiled nature by including the road and the power lines.
Boundary Country in British Columbia is located on the Crows Nest highway (#3) east of Vancouver hugging the Canada/USA border. Dotted with homesteads from the early 20th century it feels like time stands still here. The area is sparsely populated and because it is high up in the mountains has 360 degree views of wide open sky.
