      Thank you…appreciated!

  3. This was an enjoyable read Chris, I always appreciate your knowledge and understanding on the broader arts. I come away having learned something new. There were many that I liked, though I will single out “Mountain Wall. Protector of Trees” as a very fine example. It is a very delicate image and your rendition and capture is most beautiful!

    Hi Chris. Thank you for your inspiring work. I believe your work is on par with the Group of Seven, Or maybe Emily Car. Canadian Impressionists. I just came back from a trip following some of their footsteps near Wawa Ontario on the north shore of Lake Superior. Beautiful too. I’m looking forward to when I can go to one of your workshops. Love love, love your work..

    As a painter myself, I am most impressed with your new works portraying impressionism through your photographic work. For me, the most stunning are,Expression of the sea, Mountain Wall…, Paper Birch (a beauty), Retired Pilings, and, of course, I love the Painters Table!!

    1. chris says: Reply

      As you know, much of my work has been inspired by yourself and late husband Tony. Thanks so much!!

    Chris, what a pleasure it was to meet you in September in 100 Mile House and reminisce over our time together in the Cariboo Tourist Assoc many years ago. I’m very much enjoying the 2 books you offered me. They are companions now to “Spirit in the Grass” which I received as a gift upon leaving the Cariboo.
    Your collection of photos in this issue of your Newsletter remind me of the impressionable paintings we had hanging in the Red Coach Inn guest rooms many years ago. The artist’s last name was Ewart I believe? They conveyed feelings which I had experienced as a cowboy, rounding up cattle on a large ranch in the Okanagan, much like many of the ranches in the Cariboo & Chilcotin! The large prints of the original paintings were truly inspirational. Titles such as High Country, Heading Home & others with cowboys on horseback, created “Feelings” I will never forget. Guess that’s what Impressionist Art, like your current photography is all about. Love 💗 it. Thank you! 🙏

    Hi Chris,
    Do you use a monitor calibrator? Do you think its necessary for excellent prints?

    1. chris says: Reply

      The quick answer Valerie is YES, always.
