'Rushing To The Edge'


There is a place not far from here where the jagged cliff face of this island thrust fourth to meet the force of the Salish Sea. Howling gales and crashing waves have, over the millennia, carved and broken off chunks of this volcanic remnant and left those pieces strewn on the bottom below where the waves boil and crash amongst them to reach the edge. It is at once a place that you feel in your belly as much as see with your eyes. The forces and beauty of the west coast are in grand display here. It is hard to leave for fear that the connections you feel while standing there might be broken. You can sense the spirits of those human beings who first left footprints
in this place in the long ago time.

'Spring Adventure' *SOLD*


Sometimes life seems so simple and full of grand
adventure and learning can be so much fun.
The joy of memories comes much
 later when they are so
important and fun.

'Sunlight On Pieris'


Sometimes as artists we have to stretch
ourselves and go fourth on some different genres.
It has been quite sometime since I painted anything
but landscapes or seascapes.
However after this exercise I might start making
this type of thing more normal for
me than not...
