Landscapes of Northern Ontario
New Paintings by Gordon Mitchell

Artist Gordon Mitchell’s love of nature and the outdoors is the inspiration for his work. He has traveled extensively throughout Northern Ontario including: Muskoka, Georgian Bay, Parry Sound, and the Lake Superior region of Algoma.


Painting only those locations he has visited, enables him to draw upon the emotional impact of a scene, and as a result he does not try to recreate a photographical representation of a picture. Instead, he paints the scene with the emotion of the experience in vivid colours and with carefree brushstrokes that capture the natural and rugged beauty of Northern Ontario.


Gordon’s style has been influenced by instructors at the Oakville Art Society, Loyalist College, the Art Gallery of Ontario, the McMichael Gallery and renowned artist Tony Bianco.


His acrylic or oil paintings are symbolic of Northern Ontario and bring to mind the freedom of space, the majestic and serene, rushing rivers and streams, calm inlets and bays, granite shorelines, and towering pines and firs.


Gordon entices the viewer into the scene by appealing to the viewer’s knowledge of a specific location or a past experience to which they can relate. His work is also an invitation for others to visit these locales.


Prices start at $295 for an 8x10” original painting in a  high quality contemporary gold frame; a beautiful gift for anyone closing up the cottage for the season or as a spectacular gift for the holidays!
