'West Coast Treasures',

(Canadian west coast Impressionism, McNeill Bay, plein air oil painting

The title for this piece was chosen for its ambiguity.
I painted this on a glorious afternoon last week. This spot
is on the north side of McNeil Bay on Victoria's
beautiful waterfront. A very gentle soul soothing
place the beach leads out to a rocky island that is
accessible in most tides and across a narrow channel lies
the historic Trial Island light and beyond that
the Olympic Mountains across the strait.
Due to the very fast tides that swirl through this area
loads of flotsam are strewn in drifts along the
stone pebble beach. All of these treasures in their
own right, but all together, a real
west coast beach combers bonanza!
Oil on wood panel
 14 x 11.

Please email me for information about acquiring this painting.
And light has no weight,
Yet one is lifted on its flood,
Swept high,
Running up white-golden light-shafts,
As if one was as weightless as light itself,
All gold and white and light.
(Lawren Harris)
