After the Rain

"After the Rain- Tofino" 24 x 36" acrylic

Here's my first painting from the Tofino trip. It will be in the catalogue for the Painters at Painters event in Campbell River in May. I am teaching an acrylic workshop in Campbell River right after Painters, so check my website or email me if you want more information.

Another Arbutus painting

 "Island Dancer" 30 x 40" acrylic

Here's the latest painting of my favourite tree in my favourite spot on the planet. Roesland on Pender Island. I love the way the arbutus tree undulates amongst all the staid upright fir trees.

Tofino Trip


 Last weekend we spent three days in Tofino, on Vancouver Island's glorious wild west coast. We were joined by friends and fellow artists, Rick and Diane McDiarmid, Gaye Adams and Mark Hobson. The highlight for me was visiting Mark's beautiful floating studio. It's a 15 minute boat trip away from the town of Tofino- every artist's dream of a peaceful retreat to create in.

We painted on the beach, walked dogs and took a ton of photos. I'm looking forward to starting a new beach painting in the next few days.
