Shawn McNevin






After years of carefully observing the bare bones contours of the mountainous landscape, the colours and textures of the small plants and rounded stones, the effects of wind and mist on the distant vistas, Shawn exhibits a deep understanding of the phenomenon of constant change.  Against a backdrop of ancient mountains and deep fjords, she captures moments of moody, changing light and atmosphere, moments that may not be seen or captured again.  These paintings once again reveal Shawn’s mastery of the technique of oil painting which enables her to confidently and profoundly convey her sense of awe of the beauty of the West coast of Newfoundland and her appreciation for minutely observed moments in time.
