Morning Wake at French Beach

I enjoy the sense of calm serenity in the morning, being the first person on the beach, after all the footsteps in the sand had been wiped clean by the tide overnight. The warm colour in the sky illuminated the cold mist in the air, and the waves churned the rocks making them rattle and scrape in a sound that reminded me of breathing.

Sunrise on the Sand and Stones at P’Kols Beach

I was the first one out on the beach this early summer morning. The tide had been at work all night carving the patterns of ripples on the beach. I was struck by the way the water and sand reflected the sky and soaked in the warm colours of the sunrise.

Mike Lathrop Artist in Residence for the the Month of February at the VIctoria Coast Hotel

I am pleased to announce that I am the artist in residence at the Coast Hotel here in Victoria, BC for the month of February.

Due to the pandemic, this year I won’t be painting on site, but there are roughly 40 pieces of my work hanging on the first floor of the hotel and in the attached Blue Crab restaurant. Cards and puzzles are also on display and available for purchase.

This is the 4th year I’ve been at the Coast, it is a pleasure for me to see my work on display there again this year.
