Christopher Walker, Devotion (2008)
Christopher Walker is a Canadian contemporary realist painter whose subject matter reflects a distinct sense of the grand and the awe-inspiring as well as his wide ranging travels throughout many remote areas of Canada. His style is evocative of the work of Alex Colville and Andrew Wyeth, among others. Walker’s artistry is truly stunning and beautiful!

Wonderful images. Thanks for introducing this Canadian to the painter!
Those are beautiful, thanks for sharing them with us.
I looked at these images and all they need is “Great Big Sea” to provide the soundtrack…
That would be a good pairing!
Love these. Thanks for the post.
Thanks for the introduction!
Images like these combined with titles that bring forth feelings of strength – these are fast seeping into my heart 🙂
Thank you, Brett, these are wonder-full !
Allison, the best to you!
i’d love to buy a couple of those. I couldn’t begin to imagine what he’d want for them though.
These are beautiful. Thank you for sharing.
Amazing paintings. Thnaks for posting.
I’m so glad you are there to introduce me more about Canada and Canadians, Brett. Great paintings.

Makes me sick! LOL!!

Really gorgeous. The attention he pays to the very small details is really admirable too. Thanks for sharing these!
Thanks for your good comments!
They’re quite good pictures. I particularly like the vivacity of the colors.
thanks for introducing me to a dramatic and engaging new view of Canada!
Thanks for opening my eyes to this artist. I love his work!
Atlanta? Wow!!! OK …LOVE the Canada shots, but isn’t there something in Atlanta you would want to feature? I would love to see shots from that city!!! BTW–Thanks for dropping by my blog! I actually go up to Vancouver, BC as much as possible. I love it up there and have met the most genuine people in my life. OH CANADA –how I love your people! Funny thing is I am from the south —. ARMY BRAT.. I went to Auburn University and lived in Alabama a number of years. I have been in Seattle now over 20 years though!
Hey, Alesia, thanks for your good comments. There is so much I could write about, including things connected to Atlanta, but I’m still enjoying the theme I’ve chosen for O’Canada and it supplies me with ample opportunity to reflect on things of interest. Being in Seattle is quite the change from Auburn and other parts of Alabama. I’m glad you get up to Vancouver from time to time — it’s a fabulous place! Best, Brett
Thank you for your thoughtful answer. Yes. It is a big change from the south ! It’s a beautiful place and it’s home now.
Thanks for sharing this Brett 😀
I am a big fan of Chritopher Walker. I have seen his art in Mayberry Fine Art in Winnipeg and the pictures do not do him justice. The depth of his colours truly bring his work to life.
What a nice treat! As good as web images can be, they rarely do justice to the texture and colors of paintings viewed in person.
Very nice. Thanx for the info! 🙂
YOUR BEST COLLECTION EVER!
Deborah, thanks! Walker is quite the talented artist!
Clearly this is ‘my’ Canada! Absolutely wonderful, Brett! Thank you! Cher xo
Yes, it is! 🙂
*biggest grin* 🙂
I m in awe! so beautiful, I’d cry!
His art work is quite impressive!
Your blog was brought to my attention from a collector of my work recently. Thank you for your enthusiasm and appreciation for my artwork. It is always nice to have objective compliments from afar.
All the best, Chris.
Thanks so much for your kind comment! Your art and artistry are amazing and, as you can see by the comments here, certainly strikes a receptive chord with many. Thanks for sharing your exceptional talent and enriching our lives with your art!

Breathtaking! Thanks for sharing!
I’m not normally a fan of realist art, but these are stunning.
Yes, his work is terrific!
His work is beautiful! Thanks for sharing Brett!
WOW! I live in Southern California where surf art is everywhere. But this guy’s depiction of water wins out over everything else I’ve seen!
He’s got that figured out!
Reblogged this on The Popcorn Daily.
Beautiful images! Thanks for sharing
I find his work to ble contrived and gimmicky. His colours are great but the subject matter looks forced and cheesey, but art is definitely in the eyes of the beholder. I prefer more authentic and subtle landscape art. Canada has a few great ones.
