Over several years I travelled through the area East of Edmonton and admiring the wide variety, types and splendor of the Lamont County churches. I have been painting these churches, in person and from photos, to try and capture some of the feeling and history of this area. With over 40 churches in the County I have visited all but have fallen short in trying to portray each one.
For more information on the churches please see http://www.lamontcounty.ca/visitors/churches/
and for a little information on some of the church domes see http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onion_dome
The paintings were done as part of my final requirements for my Fine Art Certificate at the University of Alberta. Some of the works are shown below.
