Octopus Islands

Octopus IslandsAfter a bit of a break it’s back to work. Here’s a new piece depicting the Octopus Island Group, a marine park on Quadra Island, B.C.

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!!!

The Seed Tree

The Seed Tree

Here’s another blast from the past while I’m finishing up some new stuff. When logging here in BC, they will leave the odd tree behind to seed the area again. This scene looks down from our local mountains out across the Salish Sea toward Vancouver Island.
