Love this close look at waves washing over the sand – the lacy texture of the water against sand and stones.

Winter Wind, Salish Sea

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.

Waiting

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.

Here is a brand new video Keith took of me painting Shore Break, Salish Sea. Hope you enjoy it.

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.

Memories of last summer’s trip to Nova Scotia – the best visit ever. We saw so many friends and discovered new – to me, atleast – favourite spots. Cannot wait to return to Kingsport.

A closer look at the bubbling, foaming surf, sometimes almost melting in the light. I love the abstract and monochromatic qualities of the subject – challenging to organize and paint.

Two Geese

This is just a little painting – 8 x 10 ” – done during a plein air session with a good friend of mine at Kildara Farm. The two geese were having a lovely time going through the orchard – most of the apples picked – a few left on the ground.

Wave Break

My latest, working title ‘Wave Break’ is 24″ x 36″. I really enjoyed the many layers of the churning surf and, of course, the light – beautiful shades of white in the foreground.

Nice working a little smaller for a change- most detail done with a size 0 brush.

After finishing my last large seascape – and having it gone – I felt compelled to do another stormy canvas.‪#‎salishsea‬
