Turtle Glide 2

These great giant monsters make you feel very small – and ultimately peaceful – untill you notice their overbite!  I painted the watercolour paper with gesso to begin this painting and hence have areas that do not accpet the watercolour but add lovely texture, the feel of the coral.

All Alone

This is painted on plastic – It’s fun to work with since the effects are surprising and there is the extra challenge that water erases the colour – so building your layers is really interesting.

Fish Market

Puerto Escondido is on the south coast of Mexico on the Pacific Ocean.  It’s a small fishing town with surf big enough for competition ~ and there’s a daily fish market stocked by local fisherman who carry their catch across the beach from their little white fishing boats.  The women clean them on site and off you go with dinner under your arm.

Australia Lighthouse

This is a commission that I did in Melbourne Australia when we were there last January.  It’s on The Great Ocean Road on the south coast.  The backstory is very romantique – it’s where he proposed to her.  (She said yes and they are in the Happily Ever After phase..)

A Canadian artist’s album wouldn’t be complete without  a littlw winter.  We live in an area where there are many of these old barns;  they have a certain beauty in every season, but I think winter is the best.
