Howe Sound Moonscape

Watercolour
Howe Sound is an entirely different environment at night. It’s far from pitch black: it’s alive with colour, shapes, stars, planets and reflections. Everything transcends the day.

Howe Sound Spirits

Watercolour and Pastel
After camping overnight at Plumper Cove on Keats Island, I kayaked to Pasley Island to enjoy the view of Bowen Island. Oyster Catchers foraged on the intertidal and I watched as they cleverly opened the shells of bivalves.

Killarney Lake Water Lilies

Killarney Lake Water Lilies

Watercolour
This image reminds me of Monet’s Water Lily paintings. He thought the lilies represent the bridge between the water and the sky. Very calming.
Cape Roger Curtis

Cape Roger Curtis

Watercolour
Cape Roger Curtis has so many moods; sometimes calm, sometimes furious. I go there almost every day, just like visiting an old, but temperamental friend.
Spinnakers

Spinnaker Illusions

Watercolour
Images of several Spinnaker sailboats, from imagination.
Cape Roger Curtis with Seagull

Cape Roger Curtis with Seagull

Watercolour
Seagulls have the ability to sense storms and danger, and swiftly remove themselves from harm’s way. This is symbolic of Cape Roger Curtis’ dilemma as our community grapples with its future.

The Four Seasons

Seasons are marked by the Earth’s position in relation to the Sun. The changing of the seasons can mean the beginning of new life and that eventually hope and joy will come.

Snug Cove Sunrise

This sunrise bursts like a volcanic eruption from the mountains while the stillness of water calms the motion of the boats; it is a quiet morning.
