'West Coast Sunset'


"The tide has retreated with the setting sun
and with it the rolling surf that roared on to 
the beach just a short time ago.
Calm and almost tranquil, the sea now rests.
You feel its breath on your face 
in short breezy gusts of 
cool marine air.
No longer fearing its force you stroll to its
edge and gaze seaward where 
it seems to sleep.
Aware that not long from now its might will,
once again, send you scurrying to the
trees and rocks that hold her at bay.
Such beauty and raw power has always drawn
us to her like a mystical force 
we cannot deny."

'Early Morning Frank Island'


An early morning walk on Chesterman Beach with big surf,
what a sight. The many surfers on this October morning
commonly exclaimed "Oh sweet" as they ran toward
the in-coming breakers launching themselves
and their boards into the water.

'Spring Sky & Camas'


Though I had gone to paint the soul enriching Camas,
the clouds in the spring sky seemed to 
over take my efforts.
It was easier to watch the swallows too =;-))

'Cattle Point Camas'


This years Camas bloom at Cattle Point is nothing
 short of spectacular. However due to the areas rocky terrain
and this weekends heat and drying winds it will very
quickly start the inevitable dying off.
The time of the Camas always seems
to take forever to start but so 
soon to end...

'South Island Meadow'


This piece was worked up from a plein air
painting done last spring during the
the spring Camas bloom.
I have recently been out painting more
Camas. Sadly they are already passing the height
of this years blooming.

'Low Tide Adventures'


'An adventure most magical,
when the tides run out leaving that which was inaccessible,
exposed to unlimited exploration.
The warm spring sun on winter hidden skin,
the cries of sea birds carried on the sea breeze,
and then you find it...'
