'Morning Ferry'

On a morning such as this it is hard to imagine
the forces that have shaped these island
warriors. The beauty and peacefulness of the
Salish Sea when the morning overcast
mutes the brilliant colour of the sunrise and
softens the sounds of stillness, it can be deceptive.
But for right now standing there on these
volcanic remnants we whisper so we will hear
the chatter of the Oyster Catchers when they rise 
off the Gillinghams and the Kingfisher
when it declares its marine territory
before diving into the sea
for its prey...
Oil on canvas

'Highrock Colour'

I painted on Sunday evening in one of my
favourite local spots and fall is in full
glory there right now. 
I continue to find inspiration in this little park 
that is only a very short distance
from my studio.
