About this title

Synopsis:

In 1999, Canadian Painter Robert Genn started emailing personally addressed letters to some of his friends. One by one, in the viral nature that is the Internet, these letters were copied, shared and generally passed around. Gradually at first, Robert's list grew until tens of thousands now go out in nanoseconds from a state-of-the-art dedicated server to creatively-minded people in 115 countries. These totally free letters trace Robert's artistic pursuits, his wide range of interests, the struggles of his profession, and his remarkable travels. They also inform, inspire, motivate and give tangible meaning to Robert's abiding faith in the Brotherhood and Sisterhood of Artists. Here, between these covers, is the collection so far, with all its lumps and bumps, high points and low. These letters have been opened with anticipation and joy. Here they are, all of them, for the first time in one place.

About the Author:

Robert Genn is one of Canada's most accomplished painters, having gained international recognition for his genre subjects on Canada's West Coast. He has painted in most parts of Canada, and in the United States, Central America, Europe and Asia.

Born in Victoria, British Columbia in 1936, he attended Victoria College, The University of British Columbia and The Art Centre School in Los Angeles, California.

Genn carries on the tradition of the Canadian Landscape with fresh, painterly techniques and strong design, often and especially exhibiting his devotion to painting by reducing grand themes to small panels - painted in the wilderness he loves.
