Tidal Waters at Canoe Pass

The tight squeeze between Dent Island and Little Dent Island form these narrows that make up part of Canoe Pass Rapids. At peak tides the water flows through like a river. This view’s emphasis is on the quality of light breaking through the clouds. But even at slack tide the water still flows forming great reflecting patterns. Six hours by slow boat from Campbell River, B.C., this area is remote and spectacular!

A different view of the “Octopus Islands” group on Quadra Island. Lots of intimate little shallow coves – great for kayaking!

Coast Mountains

Coast RangeThis is my latest painting – an acrylic on board called “Coast Range”. The massive Coastal Mountains range provide the backdrop for this view is of Howe Sound from just above Gibsons. Behind Keats Island, tucked in between the trees of Gospel Rock in the foreground and the hulking range in the background, runs the Sea to Sky Highway that runs from Vancouver to Whistler.

Eagle at the Window

I just got back from a week long visit with my brother and his family on Quadra Island. Partly for a bit of a break to recharge my batteries, and partly to help him move his big boat up to Sonora Island for the summer. Before we left we got these amazing views of this bald eagle right outside his kitchen window. She was so close you felt like you could reach out and touch her. A majestic creature.

And for those following, I’ll be wrapping up “The Life of a Painting” shortly. It’s finally finished!!!
