Pangnirtung, Nunavut: A Painted Landscape Scene in the Canadian Arctic

My latest landscape painting took me to the Hamlet of Pangnirtung | ᕼᐋᒻᒪᓚᒃᑯᓐᓄ ᐸᖕᓂᕐᑑᒥ (in Inuktitut). Pangnirtung is located on Baffin Island in Nunavut, Canada, some 300km northeast of Iqaluit, the territory’s capital. I’ve never set foot there. The photo inspiration for this piece was taken by a friend and colleague who travelled throughout Canada’s youngest territory as part of a health services research grant sponsored by the Government of Nunavut and the Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement some years ago. This post is a follow up to my last, to share another example of my painting process start to finish.
