The Lions

The Lions
Melissa Burgher 20”x24” Acrylic on canvas Aluminum frame

I went up the Howe Sound Trail up Seymour Mountain last fall to see St. Marks Summit. Before the summit there is a delightful clearing showing the next hike 20 min from the lookout. This next hike is the Lions, seen between beautiful trees and bouncing Whiskey Jacks. I hiked during the season change and wanted to incorporate all the seasons we experience here in Vancouver: rain, snow, autumn leaves and summery colors. I used a thick canvas and fluid acrylic to get many of the textures found in this busy and lively piece.
