A Canadian born artist Franklin Carmichael demonstrates the beauty of the beautiful northern Ontario landscape in his serigraph “White Falls.” Carmichael used a relatively unpopu- lar medium for the time period (Andy Warhol would popularize this method in the 1960s with his piece “Maryilyn Monroe”). Although serigraphy has been used for centuries, it was only during the 1900s that photo reactive chemicals were being invent- ed to create a photo reactive stencil. Despite the challeng- es, Carmichael successfully creates the tranquil look he desires with the silkscreen method. Using a stencil and over five colors, Carmichael labors over a piece that is both time intensive and difficult. Believing that being connected with nature was essential, “White Falls” was a piece that continued to focus on the tranquility of Canada’s beautiful scenery.

While my father and mother both attended Andrews University during their undergraduate years, my father’s continued education led our small family to Ontario. Dean Self, upon the completion of his medical degree, again led a household diaspora towards western Canada. Kelowna, a luscious city nestled within the heart of British Columbia, was the stage where I developed the core of being during my adolescence. Although the city was home to a small Adventist church school, my family’s dedication to strong academics ultimately led my upbringing as a homeschooled child.
