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!

Shorelines – Dales Gallery June 2nd – 29th.
I will be having a show of my seascapes – big and little – at Dales Gallery in Victoria in conjunction with World Ocean Day. A portion of sales will be going to the Raincoast Conservation Foundation, a very worthy cause. I’m excited to see the show mounted and hope all of you close by will be able to come to the opening on June 6th, from 2-5.
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.
Video – Painting of Shore Break, Salish Sea
Here is a brand new video Keith took of me painting Shore Break, Salish Sea. Hope you enjoy it.
Shore Break, Salish Sea
Oil on Canvas 30″ x 40″
My latest seascape – love the colouring in this one – lots of warm tones and tons of energy. This was done for the CNIB Eye Appeal Art Event fundraiser to be held in May – a cause that means a lot to me because of my 96-year-old mother-in-law who absolutely depends on CNIB’s reading books and support.
