October Sunset at Beaver Lake

We watched the sunset as we walked the trails around Beaver Lake in the long October twilight. The clouds stayed largely the same, but the light and their colour changed minute to minute. Clouds can’t be touched; they are just water vapour. But they have their own world up there, and their substance appears so real that my intuition just can’t be convinced.

In the Thick of it at Camp Barnard

The climate here has always amazed me for its capacity to support life. Even in the fall, when days are getting shorter and colder, and the rain starts to come. As the trees shed their leaves, the moss and ferns are green and plump, soaking up the moisture that we nearly forgot would return in the long warm days summer just a few months before.

Recent Painting – In the Glow of the Setting Sun on Whiffen Spit

Sitting on the rocky beach, the waves push and pull the stones back and forth in a way that sounds like breathing. It’s calm and slow, fitting while the sun set on this warm late summer evening, looking back towards the Sooke Harbour House from where we sit on Whiffen Spit.
