There were vibrant colours and textures in the sky and water this evening at Clover point. I was there to photograph the sunset, my son came too. My eyes were on the sunset above while his were intent on the crabs, anenomes, and fish in the tidal pools below.

I was very pleased to have the opportunity to paint this commission for my aunt and uncle. The subject matter is dear to me, this property belonged to my family for a couple of decades. It’s a log cabin in the woods near Millarville, Southwest of Calgary. It was originally built in the 1920s with an addition that was added in the 1950s. For many years, it’s where my extended family celebrated holidays, and some of my fondest memories of my grandparents are there, too. A large part of the inspiration for this work was my grandad’s affection for the shimmering aspen, as he called them, and that particular colour of bright green they’d have in the spring. Their round leaves are darker on one side than the other, and it makes for a sparkling effect when the wind buffets them to and fro.

It is always a pleasure to take in a sunset from the ferry to and from Vancouver and Victoria. At this point in my journey, the setting sun was framed by Galiano and Salt Spring Islands.

Sometimes if I see a sunset brewing from my doorstep, I’ll hop in the car and get myself to Clover Point to take it all in. This time I had the pleasure of my son’s company, while the sky shifted colours and put on a spectacular show above us, he was crouched down with his eyes on the hermit crabs, chitons, fish and other small wonders in the microcosm of the tidal pools at our feet.

I came to Trafalgar Park early to catch the sunrise, and clambered down to the rocks by the ocean. There was a glow in middle of the sky where the sun was catching some misty clouds up there, against the otherwise deep blue that comes right before it breaks the horizon.
