Story of an Artist
The “Canadian Scene” could be used to describe Price’s work: brilliant paintings of spring and studies of nature; skyscapes, being a specialty with cloud formations calmly displaying anticipation; seascapes of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay; landscapes covering every aspect of the change of seasons. Winchell Price’s sketchbooks, numbering hundreds, tell a story of a life dedicated to the recording of the beauty of Rural Ontario, and later Vancouver Island, untethered by life’s harsh realities. His objective landscapes, skyscapes and seascapes depict the serenity and dramatics in a very traditional, beautiful and personal way.
Many of his works hang in collections throughout the world – in England, the United States, India, China, Africa and other locales.
Winchell Price was a person who let life unfold without allowing negativity to detract from his craft or his character. Few people can go through their entire lives with a positive attitude, seeing the best in people and continually growing artistically. Winchell Price was such a man.
