'Evening's Blush'
oil on wood panel

'So with the sea’s breath on my face
I gaze upon this rocky shore
All alight with evening’s blush
I shan’t lament this day just passed
For soon the stars will fill the sky
And stardust my every breath'

'Smokey Sunset'

Though we were bothered by smokey skies 
here on the south Island for a 
short while this past summer,
we were often rewarded with some of
the most eerie but gorgeous sunsets.
This was painted using a photo
reference from an artist friend

Halcyon Fields

'Halcyon Fields'
oil on wood panel
8 x 10in.
'Not from successful love alone,
Nor wealth, nor honor'd middle age, nor victories of politics or war;
But as life wanes, and all the turbulent passions calm,
As, gorgeous, vapory, silent hues cover the evening sky,
As softness, fulness, rest, suffuse the frame, like freshier, balmier air,
As the days take on a mellower light, and the apple at last hangs
really finish'd and indolent-ripe on the tree,
Then for the teeming quietest, happiest days of all!
The brooding and blissful halcyon days!'
'Halcyon Days' ~Walt Whitman~

Moonrise Macaulay Point

The moon and its affects on ocean tides
and the Earthlings that observe them
have always intrigued our species.
Attempting to capture in paint, 
a moment in natures grand display
will continue to be a 
passionate endeavor for me.

In a Summer Dream

Lying in the sun dappled shade
Beneath a canopy of old Firs
Bed of Fir needles and sweet grass
 A warm summer breeze lulls me 
Into an afternoon sleep
Dreaming a vision of summer
That will soothe my winter nights
When I long for those warm breezes
In a summer dream

Night Passage

A moments rest at the edge of the woods
The veil of darkness has settled over the land
Stardust drifts through the cooling air
Mingled with the scent of wild rose and fresh cut hay
There are sounds and movement in the pasture
As clouds lit by the rising moon sail past
The colour and light of night grow stronger
There are others about
Just beyond the reach of my senses
That must wonder at my presence
For I am a foreign traveler here
On a long night passage…

Summer Heat - Cowichan

There are places we have the fortune to
experience that burn a memory on our soul
a place where you feel the heartbeat of
the old ones who first breathed this air
and who's stardust still mingles with the scent
of pine and fir in the hot summer air...
