About me

Gender MALE
Industry Arts
Occupation Fine Artist/Painter, Photographer
Location Bloomfield, ON, Canada
Introduction I paint in acrylic on canvas, depicting the atmospheric effects of water, clouds, fog, or snow. Whether hiking along the north shore of Lake Superior, the west coast of Vancouver Island or the high country far above the tree line in the Rockies, the linear texture and atmospheric effects found in these areas have always attracted me. From the regal heights of grand cumulus thunderheads to the low lying mists of early mornings on the coast, or rain forests found the world over, I find my passion in the moods presented to me in the natural world. “The purpose and role of the artist is to bring awareness to others, so that they stop and consider what possibly would have gone unnoticed,” “There is only one Creator...the painter only recreates.” To view some of my work visit: www.jdthompson.net
