This small cove on Quadra Island is almost completely drained at low tide. This view is from the shadows of the cedars on the south side looking northward to the bluff basking in sunshine.

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

Howdy all.
As this year draws to a close, I’ve realized I haven’t posted anything for months.
Summer’s end found me wrapping up four shows in three years and I was suffering from some pretty serious painting burn out. So the fall’s been a unplanned for but rather pleasant (and NEEDED!!) break.
I haven’t been completely idle though; I’ve dealt with a bit of the business side of things and even have some new work on the go.
Not being finished yet, here’s a detail of one of the new pieces. The church is in Friendly Cove, which is a native settlement in Nootka Sound that goes back many generations. Emily Carr painted it back in the late 1920’s (different church back then I’m sure).
Hope everyone has a great holiday!
