'September Morning-Gillingham Islands'


Not for the first time, I must say that painting
here on the south end of Vancouver Island 
in the wonderful September light
is one of my most treasured 
times of the year.

AGGV House Tour 2012


Last Sunday I had the honour of being one of the six
Victoria area artists to be featured in the
Art Gallery of Greater Victoria's
"HOUSE TOUR 2012"
This popular annual event has been organized by the
'GALLERY ASSOCIATES' 
since 1953!!!!!!
Special thanks to them, AGGV volunteers (there were many)
the corporate sponsors and all the many hundreds 
of ticket buying visitors and of course
the six home owners that opened their homes
for the event.
I was placed at the wonderful waterfront home on
Gonzales Bay...wow! I have uploaded a few photo's
of my day...

I started out with warm sun at my back lighting
up my subject. That soon changed (several times).


done, cleaned up and ready to pack up...

'Coastal Beauty'


As I sit here languishing in late summer bliss,
here on the south Island we are enjoying some of the
best weather of the year, I feel somewhat of a
grasshopper whiling away the days as 
the cool wet months approach. 
The beauty of the west coast  is never ending
for me. The sensuous grace of the Arbutus trees,
there fox red bark splitting in the August heat.
The newly exposed, smooth, pale green of the new bark 
compels my caress. 
Often situated in the most gravity defying locations their
ancient beauty is mesmerizing.
