About

So much of our time and focus pulls us in all directions today.  Life is speeding along and downtime seems more and more rare. I’m attempting to create a focus through my art, a reminder to take a step back and breath. I strive to take a mediative creative approach to the natural world – my source for inspiration.  A single tree standing blissfully in a far off field, a sun dappled forest shimmering in the wind, wildflower meadows bursting forth with life and awe inspiring aurora filling the icy sky are subjects to creatively explore.

Artist Mary Loos is known for her ethereal paintings. Using an abundance of colour to depict images of trees and nature, her images appear fantastical. But lately, the artist finds herself branching out.

“I’m taking more time and really developing my artwork to create a more contemplative effect,” she said.

Using acrylic paints, Loos said the subject of her work isn’t changing, but the way she creates them is.

“I’m still planning on painting trees,” she said. “I’m going to be adding layers of texture, text, glazing and poetry and song lyrics. Hopefully, they’ll have a story to tell. It’s up to the individual to interpret it.”

Her luminous paintings often look as if they are from an imaginary world, where the sky is sometimes made of rainbow streaks or the trees a fiery red.

  1. Hi there. I was at the Tree of Peace art sale on Saturday and saw the most beautiful painting by you. It was up on the table, purples, spruce trees, moon…I am just wondering if it is still available or if someone snatched it up! I’m totally in love with it and am hoping that if I tell santa about it he’ll get it for me if its still for sale 😉 Thanks!
