'Summer Visitors'


From my studio window I can see these daisy's in my neighbours
front yard every summer. Though I have said time and
time again, "I have to get out and paint those daisy's!", it
just never happened, until this summer.

'Summer Evening Light'


The light, late on an August evening has a softer tone than
July and one that brings with it a sense of fullness.
Large swaths of marsh grass swaying and shimmering
 like waves on the sea but with a warmth you can feel.
The scent of the peat bog rises on the breeze
where swallows drift and dart.
Soon twilght will envelope us and the spirits will dance...

'Summer Afternoon - Saanichton Bay'



Low tide on a hot and lazy summer afternoon.
Several Kingfishers were working the shallows as I painted
this piece, hovering and diving. As well many other birds
were busy along the edge of the mudflats, some
grand Blue Herons among them.

'Sparkling Water - Oak Bay'


Summer wind, breaking light, sparkling water,
add some oil paint, stir lightly in the open air,
quickly now before its gone.
