Ross Penhall ― Landscape Painter, Artist at Work

By All Means Create – With Ross Penhall


Shut up and paint! In the fourth video of our By All Means Create With series, ex-firefighter and now full-time landscape painter Ross Penhall discusses how he looks at his artwork as a series of problem solving exercises, in order to be less precious about his paintings. For 29 years, Ross balanced his life as an artist and firefighter in order to pay the bills and fund his art career. Now retired, Ross finds himself in his North Vancouver studio doing something creative every day. His passion is painting warm and enigmatic landscapes, which cover the ceiling and walls of his studio. Watch this video to discover that sometimes overcoming the inner critic is as easy as just showing up.
