Portrait of Jamie Webb
Oil on Canvas 24″ x 30″
My latest portrait is of Jamie Webb in his uniform as an honorary Aide de Camp to the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia. Jamie is a third-generation Victorian. Behind him hangs a painting of the famed clipper ship, Thermopylae, on which his grandfather served as a boy, sailing out of the port of Victoria in the late 1890s.
Oil on Linen 30″ x 30″
Temporarily titled ‘Morning Chat’ (hope I come up with something better – suggestions???) 30″x30″. My son came up with “Cribbage Talking Points with Ruth and Eileen” which is pretty darn good. I think these two ladies meet frequently at a favourite spot in Sidney. Naming paintings is such a headache for me – could do with help!! This deserves a funny one.
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!
