Down River


With this painting from a scene on the Sooke River, I wanted to capture the beauty and magic of looking down river as the stream seems to disappear into mist and light around the bend. I wanted to share with the viewer the beauty a river's ever changing mood and how it touches our emotions.

This is an oil painting on a 9" by 12" canvas board.  No longer Available

Windswept Evergreens on Whiffin Spit


This painting was originally created as a plein aire one November day on Whiffin Spit. Since then I created this studio version of the same scene. I wanted to capture and share with the viewer, the raw changing features of a November day on the west coast. The weak sunlight from the south west contrasting with the dark clouds seems to add to the drama of the perpetually wind bent trees.
