River West Artworks
Original Art, Artisan Works and Photographs by Jan Jenkins and Brian Erickson


“Overland” expresses my love of repeating patterns and my need to both create order from chaos and make art that provides a peaceful and meditative experience, where I can lose myself in the creative process. This is one of a collective body of work called “In The Wind”, a series of visual artworks, along with an accompanying poem, that are based on a recurring dream I have where I rise from the ground and fly over land. The dragonflies depicted in this piece are an integral part of the Manitoba landscape and symbolize change through self-discovery and the opening of oneself to living uninhibited and in the moment, embracing authentic self. This overall design is also a repeating pattern when digitized. I created “Overland” by layering two linocut designs, the first a backdrop of land and horizon, and the second a foreground of leaves, seeds and dragonflies in the wind.

This 9x12" artwork is matted to fit a 16x20" frame. Price is $130 matted. Framing, taxes and shipping are extra.
