The original Whistler Blackcomb painting is acrylic on canvas and is 24 inches in height by 48 inches in width. There is a lot of texture and varied brush strokes. I created the Whistler Blackcomb Painting as part of a collection of three iconic Whistler images. The entire collection includes the Whisky Jack, Black Bear and Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. Each one is iconic to Whistler.
Whistler has such a fun history with so many amazing characters passing through and sticking around. I first heard the term "the bubble" when I came here at 16 years old. When I was 18 I came back for a summer and swore I would never get caught in the bubble. I moved here in 2004 and have been "trapped" here ever since. What a beautiful wonderful place to be trapped in. It's taken me this long to paint the mountains. I wanted to create an image that expressed my passion for this town through colour and brush strokes and share the exuberance of the people who live here. I love all of the seasons in Whistler and so I wanted the colours to be an expression of all the seasons. I wanted this to be an art piece but wanted to make sure that you could still find your favorite ski run.
