"The Brooding Ridge" painting was commissioned by the Heritage Art Series in Alberta. The Heritage Art Series is a collaboration of the Historic Resources Management Branch, the University of Alberta, and the Royal Alberta Museum. Approximately 25 artworks will tour Alberta. I was invited to create a piece that speaks to the Alberta experience during the First World War. To receive more information when tour dates are available, please sign up here

The subject morphs two commemorative locations together. In Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta, the naming of both Vimy Peak and Ridge took place in July to Nov. 1917 not long after the battle of Vimy. The Brooding Soldier, a monument to all Canadians killed during the Second Battle of Ypres, stands tall in the St. Julien Memorial in Belgium. 

This piece is dark and stoic in nature mirroring the First World War times. The top of the Brooding Soldier monument carved into the surface of the mountain symbolizes the return of those who did not.
