    Divine Composition

    $85.00$595.00

    Being an artist means composing, designing or creating visual poetry but never replicating or transcribing. Leave that to the camera. Whistler was criticized in his day for saying that he rearranged his compositions because nature never got it right. BUT – this place, Little Qualicum Falls is perfect. There is nothing I could do to improve or enhance the scene. Magic!

  • Schooner Cove, Tofino

    Schooner Cove, Tofino

    $20.00$595.00

    Schooner Cove Beach in Pacific Rim National Park is a magnificent site for artists. It has what I call “lots of architecture”, rocky shores and headlands overhung with Cedar and Hemlock and also craggy outcrops that spring from the golden sands and become islands at high tide. It’s easy to get to along the Schooner Cove Trail.

  • ‘One’

    $85.00$465.00

    ‘One’

    $85.00$465.00

    What started out as a painting of my daughter on the West Coast Trail, became, for me, a symbol of connection, grounding and opening to the nourishment of Mother Earth and the loving Oneness I often experience in nature. The 75km trail retraces parts of an old telegraph line cut through the coastal rain forest wilderness in 1890. Hikers get to visit thousand year old cedars and some of the tallest Stika spruce in the world.

  • Black Tail on Stoney Hill

    Black Tail on Stoney Hill

    $85.00$500.00

    Small island deer are everywhere on the southern forests of Vancouver Island. Stoney Hill Regional Park is a gem located between Maple Bay and Genoa Bay near Duncan. Spectacular arbutus and moss covered viewpoints abound. Well worth a visit. The deer are very aware over the ever-present cougars and so keep a pretty low profile. I came across this one in the interior of the park. This tree in the foreground is distinctive so you will recognize it if you explore this magical place.

    Memories of Saturna II

    $85.00$595.00

    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.

    Island Forests

    $85.00$465.00

    I often hike in and around Thetis Lake. The network of trails is vast and the forest is beautiful. I’ve tried to capture the glow that the forest provides… for my eyes and my heart.

  • Paradise Meadows Boardwalk

    $85.00$205.00

    Paradise Meadows Boardwalk

    $85.00$205.00

    “Paradise Meadows Boardwalk” was inspired by a trip to Mount Washington in the spring. It is a mountain ski village where a boardwalk has been built over the fragile vegetation in an area aptly named Paradise Meadows. The easy walk along the boardwalk is serene and relaxing as it meanders over the colorful flowers and passes peaceful ponds. It is also the gateway to the many hiking trails available in Strathcona Park.

  • Mason Jar 51 with Indian Paintbrush

    Mason Jar 51 with Indian Paintbrush

    A work from my Mason Jar series. This series began as a family history project and then moved into food and environmental security. Also called the common red paintbrush, this type grows on the land farmed/ranched by my grandparents. It is more usually found in mountainous areas, like the San Juan Ridge Ecological Reserve, a rare sub-alpine meadow that is part of the epic Kludahk Trail.

    Grace Notes

    This painting came about after listening to St Cecilia’s Mass while lying atop Anderson Hill watching birds swoop and clouds scud across the azure sky.

    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.
