    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.

  • Junco

    $85.00$170.00

    Junco

    $85.00$170.00

    Black-eyed Juncos are easy to identify for new birders. Those black heads. And pinkish beaks. And that even, musical trill. This one is an Oregon Junco. There’s a rare sub-species to keep an eye out for: the  Gray-headed Junco with a reddish-brown back. Last recorded sighting was in 1975 at the Little Qualicum River estuary.

  • 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.

  • Precarious Balance

    $85.00$205.00

    Precarious Balance

    $85.00$205.00

    This collaged monoprint was inspired by many plein air sessions on the Nanaimo River. I love watching birds and am impressed by people who balance stones along the shore. It occurred to me that the stones could be a metaphor for human relationship to nature. It is clear that this beautiful and necessary balance is becoming more and more precarious. I hope this piece inspires others to consider their balance with nature.
