'Morning Pastels'

I painted this piece early last spring from
a small cove not far from my studio.
Just as I was getting close to finishing
I could hear the fog horn from Trial Island light
to the north east indicating the approach
of fog. It had been the distant fog that
had created the wonderful hue to this scene.
Somewhat diffused and yet morning fresh...

'West Coast Afternoon'

Along the west coast of Vancouver Island
the power and force of the Pacific
comes to shore. 
At times it can be deceptively gentle but
more often it roars into the rocky
shoreline that bars it from advancing further.
Often it is a scene of muted greys,
but when the sun breaks free it
vibrates with fresh and startling colour.
