“Island Beach Stones” Original Painting

I wanted to thank all of those people who dropped by my booth at The Moss Street Paint-In last weekend. It was a very well attended and successful event! Also, a special thank you to all of those wonderful people who continue to support my artistic painting journey, which is now in it’s third decade. It is great to see and speak to people who were there when it all started out, when I was an art loving teenager. Here’s hoping that I have a few more healthy decades to continue with this journey.
I did manage to complete my latest painting at the Paint-In. It was inspired by the beautiful beach stones, on an incredible Vancouver Island Beach. It had been quite a few years since I had completed one of my rock paintings. After about 80 hours of working on this painting, I’m very happy with the final result. It is now available “for sale”, and would make a great gift, or addition to one’s art collection. Please contact me with questions, or if you are interested in purchasing the original painting.

“On the Coast”

I recently spent some time with my family exploring Pacific Rim National Park, on the west coast of Vancouver Island. It is one of our favourite places to visit. The beaches are incredible! One of the beaches that we always make a point of visiting is Florencia Bay Beach. It is a wild and desolate beach that almost has a spiritual feel to it. The surf always seems to be roaring wildly. There is a good size fresh water stream that feeds into the ocean on this beach. I really love the great variety of beach stones that can be found here. The stones come in all shapes, sizes, and colours, and I could happily spend many hours just wandering along this beach.

I just completed a small painting titled “On the Coast” that was inspired by our visit to Florencia Bay Beach. The painting has a great feel to it. I feel that with this painting, I have captured the feel of the churning surf, which is so typical of the wild west coast of Vancouver Island. This painting was painted on “gesso treated birch panel”, which was a first for me. I really liked the feel and look of working with acrylic paints on the smooth birch wood, and I plan to work with it in the future.

Fields of Prince Edward Island

Prince Edward Island is one of my favourite places. I have been very lucky to be able to spend a few summer vacations on the Island with my family. I love the friendly people, the amazing beaches, the food, the quaint architecture, and the rolling green hills with it’s rich red soil. “The Fields of Prince Edward Island” is a triptych acrylic painting that I completed a few years back. The green and iron red colours of the landscape were begging to be painted, and I was happy to oblige. The three original paintings which form the triptych, are triple matted and framed behind glass.
