A Canadian plein air painter capturing the beauty of the North American landscape.
WELCOME

Thank you for visiting Markjameslucas.com.
Wow! It’s already been four years since I’ve been painting full-time. And I’ve never been happier. 

WHATS HAPPENING
I’m currently represented in select galleries in British Columbia and I’m available for more locations. Send me a note if you’re a gallery owner and think we would be a good fit!
Check out the new map I’ve added that shows the painting locations of the last trip my partner and I did across North America.
I’m also working on a video section for our recent travels and will include tutorials and more educational content so stay tuned on that front. In the meantime, enjoy your visit and send me a note to let you know you were here.

SHOP PAINTINGS

Get right to the good stuff. See what's available right now as I am constantly adding new work to the store. If you would like a painting in a larger size, I'd be happy to do a commission for you.   

 

FLOATER FRAME

TRADITIONAL FRAME

Also stocked up – a long-time customer favourite. These fairbanks classic frames are available in multiple sizes and two colours: dark chocolate and gold. 

SHOTS FROM THE EASEL

One of the most interesting aspects of how I create my art is that is all originates from being in nature. Being in and part of the landscape is without doubt where the energy comes from in my paintings. Here’s a collection of select photos of the paintings as they were completed, on the easel.

 

ABOUT ME

In 2014 after 12 years as an Art Director, I switched careers to become a full-time painter. I decided that I would spend the rest of my life fulfilling my lifelong desire to paint. It didn’t take long to realize that painting from life made the most sense…

 

MAP OF PAINTING LOCATIONS

Curious to see exactly where these paintings were created? Every winter, my partner and I travel to different parts of North America in our van. This year will be our fourth trip. I’ve made a map of pins on it of all the locations I’ve painted, from northern Alberta, to Hawaii, to Mexico. And almost everywhere in between. Well, not quite… yet. 

INSTAGRAM FEED

Whether I’m on the road or in the studio, I try to publish content on a regular basis. Many of the paintings you’ll see below haven’t had a chance to find their way into the store yet. If there’s a painting you just need have, give me a shout as chances are you can have it before anyone else.
