Statement about Meadowlark View (Osoyoos)
The grasslands habitat of the Okanagan Valley falls within the summer breeding range of the Western Meadowlark.  They will make their shallow grass woven nests on the ground or even in the centre of a patch of cacti.  When I first started thinking about painting a Meadowlark I hadn't yet been fortunate enough to see one. I spoke to the seniors in the painting group I volunteer with about my plans. Many are avid bird-watchers and filled with good advice. They told me I was most likely to see one perched on a fence post near one of our local golf courses especially as males like to perch to stake and defend their territory.

 Having been born in the Okanagan I have for long been concerned about the impact of the large population growth in the area, and how it will affect our wildlife habitat and water resources. 

I painted my Meadowlark sitting on a fence post on the east side of Osoyoos overlooking the local golf course, with the developed town and Osoyoos Lake in the background from a photo I took while on a visit to the NK’MIP Desert Cultural Centre a few years ago.  I chose to paint my Meadowlark in a rather puffed up fashion ( I saw it posed like this in a US Fish and Wildlife photo by renowned wild life photographers John and Karen Hollingsworth) as if in indignation over the local town development and vineyard expansion that could put pressures on the birds' ability to secure several acres of habitat, necessary to successfully breed in our region.

While we humans may chose to live in one of the most favourable and beautiful regions of Canada, we must also be cognizant of the results our choice in habitat is having on the other creatures within our environment. We must think of how we can best reduce these impacts whether through education, restoration, or other steps we may take to mitigate our presence. In my art work, many pieces are painted landscapes done en plein air or from photos of my journeys near and far, most recently the Okanagan-Skaha area and the glaciers of northern BC near Stewart. While I enjoy the natural beauty of the areas that I am painting, I am also thinking about how my presence is affecting the opportunity of future generations to witness the same. While I have a strong desire to network people and communities through art, I am also hoping that I may somehow inspire people to do more to protect our fragile environment.

Painter and creator of, Angie Roth McIntosh is the Angie Roth McIntoshMeadowlark Festival Artist for 2010.  As a true Okanagan resident born and raised in Kelowna, Angie chose to return to the valley and raised her family in the Naramata and Penticton area.  Living in the south end of town, Angie has often ventured down to the Skaha/Vaseux area to work en plein air as well as north to Naramata.   McIntosh has seen many changes in the south Okanagan  and waAngie Painting En Plein Air May 8th, 2010nts to share the beauty and fragility of the local landscape while working towards creating an awareness of ecological issues important to the region.  During her journeys across the province to paint she has seen the melting of northern glaciers and the habitat loss and heating up of our southern pocket desert.  It is her dream that the arts community will play a strong role in protecting and enhancing our precious land.

From Science to Art
McIntosh studied in the faculty of Medicine at UBC.  She met her husband Dr. Robert McIntosh while doing the Rural Doctors elective at the Penticton Regional Hospital.  She left to pursue her interests in art after being encouraged to pick up a paint brush by the hospital art therapist.  With the support and encouragement of her husband and children, Kelsey and Kieran, Angie has been traveling and painting around BC and the world for the past 25 years.

MEADOWLARK FESTIVAL PENTICTON:  Angie led a Balsamrootplein-air paint out in May 2009, Don Gayton leading painters Joanne Beaulieu and Ken Strohm through the grasslands of the south Okanagan near White Lakeone of the many wonderful workshops at the Meadowlark Festival organized by OSCA in the South Okanagan.  Angie was delighted that ecologist, writer, and philosopher Don Gayton agreed to explaPainting at Meadowlark 2009 above Skaha Lakein the habitat, biology and ecology of the White Lake region south of Penticton to the group of artists who ended their day painting the hillside south of Kaleden loView West Skahaoking towards Okanagan Falls.   This year (2010) artists will meet on Friday April 21st at 8 AM at theMcIntyre Bluff painting by Murray Roed Vaseux Lake Wildlife Sanctuary  and will do a walkabout with naturalist Anthea Bryan.

Anyone wishing to partake in the fun are asked to contact the folks at the 2010 Meadowlark Festival website. For more information  contact Angie.

En Plein Air:  from a mailout by the Penticton Art GalleryBlowing away above Skaha Lake Angie trying to Paint
En Plein Air is a French expression which means "in the open air" and is particularly used to describe the act of painting outdoors. Artists have long painted outdoors but in the mid-19th century working in natural light became particularly important to the painters of the Barbizon school and the Impressionists. The introduction of paints being sold in tubes and the "Box Easel", with its telescopic legs and built-in paint box and palette made painting in oils truly portable. The ability for an artist to take their studio out into the wilderness opened up infinite possibilities and allowed artists to truly capture the spirit and mood of the landscape. While this began Angie Painting En Plein Air at Bear Festival Stewart BCto take firm root in Europe, here in Canada painters like Paul Kane and the early C.P.R. painters began to take advantage of this new found freedom and ventured into the uncharted landscape in search of the unknown. The most famous advocates of this new found freedom and the idea of painting en plein air were the members of the Canadian Group of Seven and Tom Thomson who traveled out of the city in search of the natural beauty of the landscape creating iconic paintings which helped galvanize a sense of national identity. We are pleased to offer this event as an introduction to painting en plein air and hope that it will bring greater understanding and appreciation of this tradition and in a small way strip away some of the mysteries behind the creation of art.

McIntosh will be continuing to work with artists in acrylics and watercolours this spring and summer. Okanagan Sailboat Contact her about a possible weekend workshop in acrylics in mid June in Naramata. This two day workshop weekend has been planned to get other artists working in acrylics using a very simple technique of Pink Blossoms Acrylic by Angie Roth McIntoshunderpainting a value study and then laying in exciting colour as demonstrated in Angie's painting lesson number 3 What is really great is that you can come and paint and and have a fun weekend at a lovely Bed and Breakfast in the country!

Artist Angie McIntosh has created a simple rustic painting studio in an old house in Stewart BC which is near some of the most scenic painting locations of Western Canada and  Alaska, in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.  In the summer of 2008 artists from all around gathered together to paint in this amazing inspiring location and join McIntosh for a painting retreat. Read about the first Bear Festival in 2007. Coming soon will be a post of our painting there in 2009.   It is wonderful to be in the north in the summer and early fall to paint. If you wish to participate next year contact McIntosh .  Remember the wonderful old days when Group of Seven artists inspired each other on painting trips to the Canadian countreyside?  Angie was also inspired by walking through Renoir's home in southern France. The comraderie and inspiration felt and created by the artists who met at Renoir's home must have been amazing.  Seeing the art works left in the rooms by his artist friends who would visit and paint moved her and so she is trying to create a similar environment right here in northern BC.  Click here to learn about joining McIntosh as an artist in residence at her art retreat in Stewart, BC, in northern Canada, minutes from Alaska.  Please note that the Art Retreat of the North is not available for commercial rental or as a B&B--it is Angie's place of art and creativity.  If you wish to work there or join other artists there you must contact Angie first.  Email or phone in Canada 250 809-7932.
