Jeannette Oostlander has again just managed to get all her paintings finished in time for her annual show at the Days Inn,  Friday, Nov. 22 through  Sunday, Nov. 24.

“I had another slow start,” the plein-air artist said. “But once I headed out into the backcountry the paintings came in my usual style — fast and furious.”

On-location paintings of Perry Creek, St. Mary Lake, the Hellroaring area and Cartwright Lake near the Bugaboos will all be part of the show.

Oostlander made her first trip ever into the Kananaskis and came home with several new plein-air paintings.

“The mountains were spectacular,” she said. “It was just a matter of where I should start.

“I did one little painting of a great view close to Bragg Creek and a herd of horses and a mule wandered over to check me out when I started. Then they came back to pose for the finished painting photo shoot. I’m almost certain they approve of the painting.”

A couple of hot spots in the show were inspired by the brilliant colours from her garden.

The public is invited to drop by with family and friends to the Days Inn in Cranbrook. Admission is free. The show runs Friday, Nov. 22 (5 to 9 p.m.), Saturday, Nov. 23 (9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.) and Sunday, Nov. 24 (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.).
