    Sidney Harbour Winter Sunrise #7

    $85.00$595.00

    Walking on the seawall in an early morning walk after a late night flight, I was treated to this spectacular winter sunrise from Sidney. The layers of cloud and veiled light provided subtle and unexpected colours and shapes. This piece was painted wet on wet with a lot of running of the acrylic paint and I was thoroughly satisfied with the feeling it evokes.

    Late Summer Cowichan Bay

    $85.00$595.00

    Always a lovely walk along the estuary in Cowichan Bay, this time late summer, with the crickets singing and the warm sun just setting behind us. Lovely view looking back toward the town of Cowichan Bay

    Lazy Sunday

    $85.00$480.00

    This is a spot south of Willow Point where we go with friends to have a bonfire, usually on Sunday evenings. I went a little earlier in the day to catch the light. One of our favorite spots.

    The Conductor

    $85.00$500.00

    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.

    Bamfield study

    $85.00$360.00

    This tiny community on the West Coast of Vancouver Island was originally populated by the Huu-ay-aht First Nation. Europeans arrived and formed a small fishing village sometime in the late 1800s. Most of the Huu-ay-aht people now live in the neighbouring village of Anacla, about 5 kilometres from Bamfield.

    The Duet (This Pacific Life)

    $85.00$480.00

    This was inspired by my travels down the Juan de Fuca Trail on Vancouver Island’s West Coast. And by the kelp beds, mussels and, of course, the oh so formal Cormorants. Water fowl for sure but without natural oils to protect their feathers ( like ducks) they must dry their wings in the sun and shore breezes after every dive.

    Petro-ecomomics. Not a sum-zero game.

    $85.00$460.00

    The rocks and waves were encountered as I clamored over the shoreline north of Botany Bay. You need to be careful to keep your footing as one slip into the thrashing and very cold waves could have nasty consequences. It is easy to get seduced by natures beauty into below tidewater situations as well. Being stranded on an incoming tide would turn you into a statistic here so be mindful if you explore this section. The intent of this painting is to consider the impact of that seemingly non-threatening oil tanker on the horizon on this spectacular ecosystem in the foreground.

    Mesmerized

    $100.00$595.00

    I am mesmerized by the constant changes in the sky and drift wood. This is my favourite little segment of beach along Victoria’s most popular footpath. I come here to unwind at the end of my day, with the comfort of the cemetery behind me and the Salish sea stretched out before me.

    Walking around Newcastle Island just off of Nanaimo, I spotted this amazing Arbutus tree clinging to the rocks and reaching out over the edge. As if to take in the view from it’s perch, these trees can often live in the harshest of conditions.

    WAVES STUDY 1

    $85.00$595.00

    The mysteries of the sea have inspired creatives for centuries and remain a continual source for contemplation. I am fascinated by the rhythmic sound and motion of waves and wanted to further explore their organic and ever-changing form in greater detail. This piece is one of my favourites in a series of recent watercolour studies, inspired by one of my favourite beaches on the Pacheedaht First Nation reserve land.

    I captured this image while hiking into Schooner Cove in Tofino. It was early morning and we had just reached the beach to discover some perfect conditions. There was a slight mist in the air and the sun was shining perfectly through the trees. As soon as I saw this scene I was super excited and took a ton of photographs! Sometimes it is just about being there at the right moment.

    This painting was inspired by Florencia Beach in Ucluelet. I am always attracted to the edge of water and I wanted to capture the sensation of waves cascading onto the beach. And yes, I did get my feet wet as I was capturing my reference image!

    Visions of Metchosin

    $85.00$465.00

    One summer day, we were walking along the coast in the breathtaking East Sooke Park, and I settled down to do a series of sketches of this beautiful rugged coastline. Windswept trees, rocky shores scattered with the long spirals of bull kelp, sun casting white across the ocean, islands peeping out like whales from the turquoise sea. It was a blissful landscape.
    When I returned to my studio I fused the sketches into one painting.

    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.

    On patrol – bald eagle

    $85.00$595.00

    Inspirations come from many different places here on Vancouver Island. I am always drawn to the West Coast and it’s many hidden treasures it offers the curious soul. One can see majestic bald eagles as they patrol their range, always on the look out for a meal. Brady’s Beach is one of (many) favourite places to visit and understand the natural world.
