This Diptych is a view looking back up a small spit of land in Pirate’s Cove on Decourcy Island, one of the many small Gulf Islands in south western B.C.
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.
This evening scene is a view in Pacific Rim Natioal Park, near Tofino, on the west coast of Vancouver Island. View at Madrona Gallery, Victoria, BC
After 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.
I love this one, she’s looking right at me probably wondering what the hell I’m doing!
She is literally only about 20 feet away.
A nice close up.
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!!!
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.
This is a nice little piece I’ve just finished that will be in my spring show at Petley Jones Gallery. The scene is near the entrance to Long Harbour, Saltsring Island, which is in the gulf island group that lie between the BC/Washington mainland and Vancouver Island.
This is another small piece for my spring show It’s 12×16, acrylic on board. Nootka sound is on the west coast of vancouver island.
