Quesnel Lake Reflections- Watercolour on canvas
One of a series of paintings depicting the Wildwood Forest in Cedar BC.
Landscape it important to almost every artist living on the West Coast and spending time out of doors. In my work as an art instructor I teach others how to draw and see the forest. In my time as a person and an artist, I sit in the forest, draw, observe, smell, and listen. This painting is of Quick's Bottom, a bird sanctuary in Saanich. 14 X 11" SOLD
Maples at Goldstream
If you know Goldstream Park, you know it is full of magical places. This place is just off the stairway leading to the waterfall. The maples are embraced by moss and topped with transparent leaves. The dark trunks of the evergreens are like punctuation marks in the flow of greens and lights coming through a break in the canopy. The theme of young life comes again in this work, in the form of a young cedar. How cedars love the deep and damp forest places. Tread softly and look quietly.
Original watercolour painting is 11” X 15”
Available as a giclee print $85.00 plus shipping.
