Jeannette Oostlander has been busy painting for her 21st solo exhibition, and the new paintings will be on display this weekend.

The show takes place at the Day’s Inn in Cranbrook, Friday, Nov. 23 (5-9 p.m.), Saturday, Nov. 24 (9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.) and Sunday, Nov. 25, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

A plein-air artist, Jeannette has been painting on location and in the studio getting ready for the show.

“I made up for a slow start by taking a trip along the Banff/Jasper highway,” she said. “I love the scenery along that route and the paintings came fast and easily. Everywhere you look the views are spectacular.

“The difficult part is trying to choose what to paint. And trying not to paint all that gorgeous scenery in one painting was a challenge too.”

For local scenes, the fall colour at Moyie and a couple of spectacular local gardens provided joyful colours in early summer, and bright, warm paintings for her show.

The public is invited to drop by with family and friends to this year’s work at the Day’s Inn in Cranbrook. Admission is free.
