    Sunrise on Chesterman

    $85.00$480.00

    Chesterman Beach in Tofino is such an amazing place! I love talking a walk here at sunrise or sunset, especially when the tide is low and you can walk all the way to Frank Island. This is a scene walking towards Frank Island on North Chesterman. The light at sunrise is spectacular!

    Where the heat of summer impulse meets refreshing calm – inspired by reflective moments at a tiny cove near the Point No Point Resort near Shirley, BC. Memorable at any time of year, but really spectacular on sunny summer days.

    Pick up sticks

    $85.00$115.00

    Storms toss logs into a tangle along the shores of French Beach Provincial Park. This beautiful stretch of forested hiking trails, flat beaches and perfect picnic spots is an ideal location to keep an eye out for incredible wildlife. In the spring watch for migrating Gray whales. All year you can see resident killer whales, otters, seals, sea lions, Bald eagles, osprey and a variety of seabirds.

    The Northern Junk building is among the oldest commercial warehouses in Victoria’s Inner Harbour.  It was built in 1860 during the Fraser River Gold Rush, when Victoria was the primary reception point and supply town for miners coming from California en route to the interior of British Columbia.

    The Southern tip of Vancouver Island was once home to expansive ecosystems of Garry oak (over 10,000 hectares in 1800 to 512 in 1997) . Garry oak ecosystems are at risk and many are protected. These groves were a vital food source to the people, plants and animals of this region. Set against a rolling expanse of sheep pasture and the sparkling Juan De Fuca Strait, the gnarly branches and twisting limbs of the majestic Garry oak line the drive to Taylor Beach in Metchosin.

    Mason Jar 27 with Miner’s Lettuce

    $85.00

    Miner’s lettuce is one of the early spring vegetables that miner’s ate when they first came to the West Coast. This image is part of my Mason Jar Series in which I explored family history, which quickly moved into food security and now has also moved into environmental security. This lettuce grows in wet places in parks and ditches all over the island. These leaves were harvested in Central Saanich.

    On a blustery March morning I was exploring East Sooke Regional Park when I came upon this fellow. I love cormorants and their postures as they dry off their wings. Even on this blustery and cool day it is necessary to dry off before flight is practical. If you hike along these shoreline trails you will discover these entertaining characters.

    Catboomer

    $85.00$460.00

    For a few years I painted right up against the ocean, in the little town of Cowichan Bay. My art studio was located between wharfs and fishing boats. For many thousands of years Cowichan Bay was home to Coast Salish people who harvested the wealth of salmon and shellfish found in its many coves, tidal flats and swiftly flowing rivers. Cowichan Bay was the gateway for European settlement of the Cowichan and Chemainus valleys from the early 1860s. This deepwater port remains active to this day, with sport and commercial fishing and log and lumber exports.

    Cedar at Francis King Park

    It was a rare foggy morning and the light was just right for a walk in Francis King Regional Park. The magnificent moss-covered cedars in the park took on an almost “glow-in-the-dark” character when illuminated from behind. This tree in particular exemplifies the great sweeping curves of cedar branches.

    Memories of Saturna II

    A magical wedding at East Point Park on Saturna Island prompted this painting. The light was so dazzling and the landscape so imbued with colour, it just cried out for a painting. East Point Park is now a part of the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve, one of Canada’s newest national parks. The park protects a beautiful landscape of rocky headlands, forested hills and shorelines studded with colourful tidepools.

    Ultimate Journey

    $85.00$205.00

    Having reached their reproductive potential, each year adult sockeye make the harrowing journey from the Pacific Ocean back to their natural streams where they once developed. The journey is neither short nor easy. Significant energy resources are depleted, cataracts block their path, and many predators intend to make nutritious meals of them. The salmon fight the odds. It’s a perilous journey with death as the inevitable result, but it is one of nature’s most incredible spectacles. Death leads to new life, whether it is the next generation of salmon, as food for bears, or nutrients that leach into the ecosystem as their bodies decompose. Top fly fishing rivers for Sockeye Salmon on Vancouver Island: Stamp River, Campbell River. Painting inspired by original reference photo courtesy of flyfisher Kasey Halcro, Montana.

    Mystic Beach is a popular hike to see the waterfall and enjoy the scenic views. The trail is actually part of the Juan de Fuca Marine Trail so is fairly well maintained. On the walk to the beach you descend numerous stairs, but the hike is worth it. Taking photos of sunsets means hiking out in the dark wilderness!

    This venetian plaster painting honours the Cheewaht Giant – a massive Western red cedar tree near Cheewaht Lake. The Giant is Canada’s largest known tree. The western red cedar has been called “the cornerstone of Northwest Coast aboriginal culture,” and has great spiritual significance. With much of Vancouver Island having been logged two or three times, these giants are now rare. Luckily, this tree is protected within the boundaries of Pacific Rim National Park, which is located in the tradition territory of the Ditidaht People.

    A pail and a shovel, soft sand and tidal pools … what could be better. Chesterman Beach is one of the best beaches on Vancouver Island to explore – especially at low tide. Tofino has some of the best tidal flora and fauna from Mexico to Alaska. Sea stars number in the hundreds, orb-like sea anemone and sea urchins cling to rocky tidal caves, and everywhere you step, hermit crabs scuttle.
