Featured Art by Rob Zeer – ‘Bathers and Dog’


‘This 1×1 metre ‘Bathers and Dog’ was painted on the shoreline of Lake Okanagan in 2010.

‘I set up my easel on the shore of the lake, with background of an extinct volcano, the Selkirk Mountains behind but needed some ‘foreground material’. At that moment a young guy with his huge black dog and pretty girlfriend happened to be walking by and I instantly though perfect! They were thankfully very obliging to pose for some pictures taken with my IPad.

‘This painting is still in my domain to purchase, in case anyone is interested.’

~ Rob Zeer

‘Bathers and Dog’ is featured on the October 2017 poster of Surrey Muse.

Featured art by Rob Zeer – ‘Gastein Stream’

‘Gastein Stream’
60x60cm acrylic on canvas. Gastein Valley, Austria 2014

‘Gastein Stream’ was painted on location in the Gastein Valley, Austria, the spring of 2014.

‘I picked out the composition the day before on a hike with my wife, Corina. Early the next morning I hiked back to spot, set up my easel on the edge of the streambed and painted. Being early spring morning it was a bit nippy, with fresh spring vegetation sprouting forth and the stream run-off in full force.

‘There is a water spout shown spilling water into the stream. The water spout is a drain from some sort of ancient water-works building shown in the top right hand corner.

‘Though painted in Austrian Alps this scene can also be placed somewhere in the Canadian Rockies.’

~ Rob Zeer

Gastein Stream’ is featured
on the September 2017 poster of Surrey Muse.

Featured Art by Rob Zeer – ‘Street Kids’

‘Pink Rose’, from ‘Street Kids’, Kelowna BC 2008

Street Kids

‘In 2008 while living in Kelowna, British Columbia, I created a series of 16”x20” / 40cmx50cm pastel or acrylic portraits on paper.

‘Shortly before my small mid-week drawing session I’ld walk to the centre park where wayfaring youth hung out. There I’ld find & proposition a fresh new model.

‘It was always win/win; the model leaving with some cash, artists with a portrait, and everyone with new friendship, understanding and acceptance from the day.’

~ Rob Zeer

‘Pink Rose’ is featured on the August 2017 poster of Surrey Muse.
