Roger Latta-Artist

Roger has been painting for thirteen years. He paints in acrylics because it is a forgiving medium in which to work. He main interest is landscapes, in which he aspires to create a feeling of peacefulness and tranquillity, but he also does abstract and occasional mixed media/found art pieces.

He is a former art teacher, a member of the Ottawa Art Association and a past member of the Nepean Fine Arts League and the Manotick Art Association. His work is on continuous display at the Ottawa Little Theatre and periodically at other venues in Ottawa. It can also be seen at http://www.rogerlatta.blogspot.com

A word about painting from Emily Carr. “We may copy something as faithfully as the camera, but unless we bring to our picture something additional ‑ something creative ‑ something of ourselves ‑ our picture does not live.” (Taken from Emily Carr, a Biography, by Maria Tippett, Stoddart, 1979, page 193.)

    A nice post and a very good artist, Catina. I love the quote from Emily Carr. I think it can be applied to all forms of writing and art.
