New Painting – Sunset at Swan Lake

This was painted from a photograph taken during the long twilight of a spring night. There seems to be a time of year when spring progresses more and more every day. With longer days, plants wake up from their long sleep, and a weight lifts from our collective shoulders. On this night, when we walked around Swan Lake, it felt like the world was exhaling and starting to relax. We had to step up our pace to avoid being out after dark at the end, though. Night was approaching. Winter hadn’t given up all of it’s tenacious grip, but it was a relief to see colour returning to the landscape, and the sun in the clouds against a blue sky.

Prints and the original painting are available here.

New Painting – Islands from Bear Hill

There is an ambivalence for me when I see the ocean. I grew up on the prairies, where there is almost always a way to walk to any place you can see.

The ocean is full of life and possibility, and it is a gateway to the rest of the world, but it can also be seen as an impassable boundary that makes islands into worlds of their very own. That’s how I like to think of them when I see them from the summit of Bear Hill on the Saanich Peninsula.

Prints and the original painting are available here.

I’ll be at the 30th Annual TD Art Gallery Paint-In!

I am pleased to announce that my work has been selected to participate in the 30th Annual TD Art Gallery Paint-In, otherwise known as the Moss St. Paint-In.

It’s a very cool event. Attending it last year is a big part of what inspired me to get back into painting.

It’s on July 15, 2017 from 10am-9pm. I’ll be there during the day, painting on site with a display of my originals and prints for sale. You can read more about it here, or about last year’s event here.

I’m looking forward to it, and I hope to see you there!
