2. ERNIE SCOLES at Wah-sa Gallery

Work by the Cree artist, who says “When I’m painting I have a great feeling of peace and harmony with nature and I feel a powerful connection between our creator and all living things. I believe my images reflect a oneness of nature and our human feelings. In my work I try to capture the spiritual interaction of life with the earth, sun, wind, and sky. I always hope that at least one person will like the image I have painted.”
