For sev­eral months, artist Niki Kingsmill worked on paint­ings in­spired by the pho­to­graphs peo­ple sent her show­ing their trav­els in Canada. What re­sulted was a wa­ter­colour for each prov­ince and ter­ri­tory. At right, the rocky sea­side ter­rain of Peggy’s Cove rep­re­sents Nova Sco­tia. It was in­spired by a photo sub­mit­ted by @an­drea_lilly.

The Black Tusk Black­comb, sub­mit­ted by Jamie #ex­plorebc #beau­ti­fulbc, fea­tures the ma­jes­tic peak near Whistler, Bri­tish Columbia.

This paint­ing is called Elk at Jasper. The scene of the alpine graz­ers at the na­tional park in Al­berta’s Rocky Moun­tains was in­spired by a pho­to­graph sub­mit­ted by @bdakins.

New­found­land and Labrador fea­tures colour­ful houses in St John’s, a scene in a photo by @cap­ture.passion.
