From beautiful prairie skies to cottonwood trees in their own backyard, these two Olds and area artists are showcasing their complementary artworks in this series of work that shows different styles and techniques. Painting their surroundings inspired them to experience more fully the place they call home and celebrate the joy they find in rural Alberta’s changing seasons.              

Theresa Potter and Lorene Runham are multi-media artists inspired by the love of home; their land . . . rural Alberta. This partnership of work includes landscape paintings using acrylic, soft pastel, watercolour, digital, and mixed-media.

Their joint artist statement reflects their passion for the rural Alberta area:

Over the years, we have found we know and see our surroundings more deeply. Painting our response to a particular experience and place, we would have to say the subject found us. The resulting work keeps growing and growing. We know we will keep adding to the collection because it is very personal to us. After all, it is home. We are living ‘cottonwoodSky’!
