Paintings in their new home

I don’t often get to see my paintings once they’ve been sold, but this collector was kind enough to send along a photo of her den. She has 2 originals and one print hanging there.

While I am working on them, I develop a close relationship with the matter in the canvas and the paint. There is nothing that makes my day like selling artwork, but I do miss them, and from time to time, I remember and think about each painting I’ve made.

It warmed my heart to see this photo of these ones hung on the wall in their new environment. Many thanks to the owner!

Recent Painting – Saltspring Island Sunset at Ruckle Beach

We were out camping in Ruckle Park on Saltspring Island in the early part of the summer. The new warmth of the season seemed like it took an eternity to arrive, and like it would last another eternity before it ebbed into fall. I went for a walk down to the beach to take in the sunset, and watched the sinking light from the horizon cast pinks and yellows into the few clouds in the sky; making for a warm luminous glow in the trees, grass, ocean and driftwood that surrounded me.

The original and prints are available here.
