Bert Liverance - Botanical Painter, Goodwood, Ontario
January 30, 2013
In the time of over ten years I’ve known him, I see Bert putting himself into life exuberantly, confidently, engaging whomever or whatever he’s in contact with with great panache and yet carefully and competently.
I’d say his constant output in lively oil paintings of luscious flower blossoms, luxurious colors, some delicate, all, to me, with a deep feminine essence, detailed precision in execution and display, perfectly aligns with his style in life. He and Sarah make an ideal husband /wife team supporting their work.
“I capture the bold colors, light, and shadow in a hyper realistic style to make the flowers come off the canvas.”
“Flowers are colorful translucent delicate creatures that surround us in our every day life. They evoke strong emotions and symbolism. My journey continues, join me as I continue to explore the world of flowers…Stop, smell the flowers and enjoy! ” ~ Bert Liverance
Here are some links to his web site, and to youtube videos of him at work.
Here’s what Bert has to say about Upper Canada Stretchers…
“I wanted you to see how amazing these frames look. I stained them with walnut stain and then put 6 coats of varnish on them.
I displayed the frames and paintings at the Botanical Artists of Canada juried exhibition last Oct-Nov. The vertical painting won best in show for oil/acrylic paintings.
I think the frame helped showcase the paintings. Thank you!”
