    Gold River Sunrise

    $85.00$205.00

    This piece was inspired by the bold war paint colors found on the rainbow trout gill plate. Tranquil moment after catching this beautiful fish and gently releasing it back into its home water: feeling like you’re watching a beautiful sunrise to sunset moment. Vancouver Island is home to some fantastic river and lake fly fishing. Anglers from around the world travel to the island’s fruitful waters to catch rainbow trout in abundance. Original reference photo courtesy of fly fishing guide and author Phil Tereyla, Colorado.

    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.

    Always The Chase

    $85.00$205.00

    Anglers blaze winter months in pursuit of one elusive silver prized steelhead, a salmonoid that demands dedication and a commitment of many hours to hook even one. The pursuit is an act of fisherman’s patience — one with no guarantee of success but one that offers the potential for thrill unmatched by any other fish species that swims BC’s river’s. Top 6 Steelhead rivers on Vancouver Island: Cowichan River, The San Juan River, Stamp-Somass-Sproat River, Gold River, Nimpkish River. This painting was inspired by original reference photo courtesy of Professional Photographer Matt Guymon, Freestone River Photography, Utah.

  • Sardines, Thursday

    Sardines, Thursday

    $85.00$345.00

    I had my studio in Cowichan Bay for a few years (2016-2017) and fell in love with the spirit of the place. The Pacific Sardine is a member of the herring family. This small schooling fish is an important part of our marine ecosystem as food for larger creatures like salmon and humpback whales. Between 1920 and 1940 there was a robust sardine fishery on Vancouver Island.

  • Ultimate Journey

    $85.00$205.00

    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.

    The Last Dance

    $85.00$595.00

    Inspiration comes from countless hours exploring the many rivers and creeks through out the Island. This stream is one of many that drain into Sproat Lake, near Port Alberni. I painted these sockeye salmon (life size) trying to capture the movement between the fish and the riffles of shallow water.
