I've tried to portray some of the more captivating buildings and views. Many of the houses go back almost as far as Vancouver, but have been restored and are now full of life. The downtown is vibrant both day and night and I keep finding new things that interest me.
The paintings of Tom Antil are colorful and a bit rough edged. They are painted on unsanded plywood. This adds a certain texture and roughness of it's own. Tom attempts to make his portrayals of city scenes lively and upbeat. Thematically, he tries to portray cities as being an extension of nature, adding to the interest of the landscape rather than becoming a blight on it.
