Art Fx is a year-long series on Huntsville Doppler featuring Huntsville-area visual artists.
“After the Rain” by Tina McAuley is an 8″x10″ oil painting.
“We were at our cabin on Rock Lake in September, and it poured rain for three days straight,” recalls Tina. “We found out after that it had been record-breaking rain. Once the rain finally broke, we headed out in the canoe and the lake was lit up in beautiful pink and blue light. I took a few pictures and painted this once we were back home.”
About the artist:
Tina McAuley is a photographer and artist living in Huntsville, Ontario, not too far from Algonquin Park.
With a lifelong love of nature, she can often being found camping, hiking, canoeing, snowshoeing, or otherwise meandering in the woods.
Inspired by the beauty of nature, her pieces reflect the serenity and joyfulness that she experiences when outdoors. Photographs all capture a moment along a journey—a loon that popped up beside the canoe, the vibrant light of the sunset while a canoe paddled across the lake, the softness of a pine marten in the snow. Many paintings are painted while on an adventure, or created in the studio based off photographs and memories.
Tina’s favourite compliment is when someone tells her that one of her images makes them feel like they do when they are in nature, or that they’re inspired to get outside.
Achievements include three eight-month exhibits in the Visitor Centre in Algonquin Park, awards for the Canadian Geographic Wildlife of the Year photo competition and the Canadian Wildlife Federation annual photo contest, as well as having pictures published in Algonquin Park publications and national magazines.
