This is a 24″ x 36 painting of a scene from the bike trail going into Victoria from North Saanich – at Blenkinsop Lake. I have called it Autumn Breeze. This was done specifically for the Live Auction of the CNIB fundraiser, to be held in May 2017 – the only charity that I support with a donation of a painting. I hope it brings in $$$ for a very worthy cause. #eyeappeal #CNIB

Demonstration Piece for Oak Bay Art Club
A painting started the other night as a demo for the Oak Bay Art Club who graciously invited me to perform! Not bad for less than two hours work! The canvas was 30 X 40. I will be doing a bit more to finish but am quite happy with the overall effect and greatly enjoyed the occasion last night. Thanks, OBAC!

Woman Waiting, oil on canvas 36″x 40″
Sometimes I see scenes that I feel compelled to paint. The quiet drama in this image – the sharp, uncompromisingly abstract quality of the black areas and the wire chair, contrasting with the softness of the light on the figure and on the draped jacket and purse are wonderful pictorial element. But what captures me the most is her expression – is it impatience, anxiety, expectation or all of the above.
