Harry Stooshinoff's Profile

About

When I was a boy growing up in Saskatchewan, I used to look far into the distance and wish I had more trees around me....to protect me and make the place feel less empty.

Now I have lots of trees around me, but I still like to look very far into the distance.

It's a big, NOISY world...
So I make small, quiet paintings...

.........................................................

Here you can purchase original paintings at very affordable prices. The work is small. Why? Because an intimate scale encourages maximum intuition, freedom and experimentation.

There is a desire to bear witness every day. It seems negligent not to record how the world looked and felt today.....it will be very different…
