Arbutus on Little P’Kols

At the top of little P’Kols (also known as Little Mount Douglas), there is a single arbutus tree away from the rest. It’s a nice walk to get up there, with a bit of a huff and a puff uphill. Once you are at the top, you are rewarded with this view that overlooks West across Cordova Bay and up the Saanich Peninsula to the North.

The original 24×30″ acrylic on canvas painting and prints on canvas or paper can be found here:

Maple in the Canopy at Goldstream

Looking up in Goldstream often feels like architecture. The way the leaves from the maples catch the sun; it often reminds me of stained glass.

Sunrise from an Early Ferry on the Georgia Straight

I painted this using a photo I took at Sunrise, on the Ferry on the way to Vancouver from my home in Victoria. The ferry offers a spectacular way to take in sunsets and sunrises, juxtaposed against the changing seascape of the gulf islands

This is part of a series of small paintings in which I’ve been experimenting with the use of texture with heavy body acrylic gel medium.
