"Stay at Home"


While staying at home in March & April 2020, it has given me the time to paint more Oils of Wildlife. Something I've been wanting to do for years now.

So here  I am, working on my new Heron & Golden Eagle Paintings:



My home is now getting overloaded with my new Oils Paintings:

Canadian Geographic 2018 Bears Calendar

My Bear Image was chosen to be in the 2018 Bears Calendar printed by the Canadian Geographic Magazine.

I took this photo in Ucluelet, when the bear was coming out of the forest to sniff the morning air in the sun, just before he swam across the other side.

What a delight to see this black bear.

I won the overall runner up nature wildlife photo on the Land Title Alliance of BC website or LTABC

" Pacific green frog on a skunk cabbage"

I took this at Burnaby Lake on a hot August morning, the frog wanted a bit of sunshine from the morning dew to warm up.  I love the shadow of the frog coming through the skunk cabbage.   It took me a long time to find these frogs, as they just blend into the green grasses.

The Fish Hawk

Watercolor 11x14 Osprey

This is my newest painting, finished March 2017. I enjoyed painting the feathers and the wood. Painting the clouds are always a challenge.

I just did my first Oil Painting class and painted a tree. Wow, it's been 40 years since painting in oils, a reality check for me! I enjoyed painting thick brush strokes again. It's going to be a long time before I can show you my latest oil paintings. But hang in there, I just might surprise you and myself if I can do it again!

My Vacation in Pheonix, Arizona

Yes, the land of flowering cacti, saguro cactus, dry heat of 90 degrees, blue skies, old western towns, singing cowboys, turquoise jewelry & even palm trees.

The western art galleries were fantastic! Lots of western landscapes and cowboy scenes. Watercolor paintings are not accepted there because people want to see brush strokes and bright colors in oil. I guess that leaves me out. Another reason for me to try painting oils again.
