Shelter from the Storm

This painting was inspired by a plein aire session on a windy November day on Whiffin Spit near Sooke British Columbia. The driftwood structure in the painting is a temporary structure built by beach visitors.  I thought the subject lent itself perfectly to the mood of the November light and the west coast storm.
This a 11" by 14" oil painting on birch panel.  No longer available

Sunset Glow

This painting was inspired by the glow of the setting sun reflecting softly on the landscape while the shadows along the rocks held a cool bluish tone.  This scene is located on the west coast of Vancouver Island at a location called Point No Point.
