“Message in a Bottle” 36″ x 60″ Oil on Canvas…. living in wine country, we often hear “bring more wine” from those outside the Okanagan, in this painting Message in a Bottle notice the attention to detail and perhaps Dave Watland’s sense of humor. “It is nature’s wealth of colour, shapes and composition that inspires me to paint.”

Dave Watland was born in Camrose, Alberta in 1958. He attended Alberta College of Art in Calgary, AB and later Pacific Vocational Institute in Burnaby, BC. After a 25 year career in graphic arts, Dave is now focussing on painting. His work has been shown in solo and group exhibits in the Kootenays, Okanagan and Lower Mainland. He is very active in supporting the arts community in the Central Okanagan and serves on the board of Lake Country Artwalk. Dave resides with his family in Lake Country, B.C.

Dave sees himself as a realist landscape artist, known for his paintings of stones and streambeds, he wants to take you on walks along rivers and to the mountains where he is moved by the abstract arrangement of rocks and natural elements that we so often miss.

Dave will also be presenting at Artwalk on Sept. 10, 11 in Lake Country, BC. Visit the Artwalk website for more info.
