Les Thomas Paintings

As an animal lover, I was thrilled to discover Canadian artist Les Thomas about 10 years ago while vacationing in Lake Louise.  His paintings are extraordinary and you must see them in person to really appreciate his work.  You need a large room for the 48x48 oil, wax panels that depict animals in action but a 24 x 24 panel will work in a variety of rooms.  The light will change the look of the painting depending on the time of day.

He paints wonderful rabbits, deer, bears (grizzly, black and polar), fox, cows, wolverines, coyote, caribou, lynx, moose and antelope.  You can buy his work at the Canada House Gallery in Banff.  Today the exchange rate is about one to one, so the Canadian dollar prices are pretty close to what you will pay in American dollars. 

Here are a few examples of his work:

oil, wax, panel, 48" x 48"

Cinnamon Bear
oil, wax, panel
48" x 48"

oil, wax, panel
72" x 72"

36" x 36"
oil, wax, canvas

Canada House will ship anywhere and they offer wonderful service.  If you find yourself near Calgary, stop by and see the Les Thomas paintings or some of their other artists.  Great art makes a house a home!
