Eagle feather and shadows.

Painting this morning – headed down to Franklin Beach…and I mean “down” a lot of stairs. Behind a huge bluff, of no particular interest as the light came up behind it, except for the heavy angular shadow that it cast across the sloping beach stones. Long shadows all the way. You gotta love the early […]

The joy of sitting still

Folks that I meet when I am out working on location are either astounded that I am quite able to draw, paint and work in an outdoor, public location…or amazed that I do it fairly quickly. Or both. Yes …I am painting. Yes…this is what I do. After years and years of practice. 40 years […]

New paintings – natural patterns

I have yet to follow through on some of the large Haida Gwaii canvasses that I had planned.
