Active Pass Lighthouse on Mayne Island

Since 1885, a lighthouse has stood on this site to mark the Eastern end of Active Pass, and has made it easier and safer to navigate from Vancouver to Victoria by sea.

As I write this, the original is available for local pickup in Victoria before Christmas.

Links to purchase the original 6×6″ acrylic on canvas painting, or prints on canvas, paper and birch plywood can be found here:

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.
