Plein Air at Nanaimo Estuary 2017

My son Kyle and I, are working on a series of short videos for my social media stuff. We found ourselves wandering into the Nanaimo River Estuary. I’d never been down this way before and was impressed by its rugged beauty. It is a hang out for arrant eagles and ravens as they constantly harassed us with noise and maneuvers during the painting session. Attached is some photos and a video of the rainy low ceiling cloudy afternoon… Please follow and like us:Read more

Edith Cavell, Jasper National Park, August

‘Jasper is no ordinary place. Everything is bigger than life including my gallery owner, Wendy Wacko. I had the pleasure of painting with her one beautiful Jasper afternoon.  She just returned from a four day kayak trip in storm force wind and rain navigating into the back recesses of Maligne Lake. Most people would have passed on the invite to go plein air painting up in Edith Cavell, but not Wendy.  We hiked up a formidable moraine spine, ladened with our packs full of easels and paint,Read more

Many of our artists have made the journey into the Great Bear Rainforest to experience the wilderness and beauty of the Earth’s largest intact temperate rainforest. Growing up in the lower mainland the mid-coast of British Columbia was thought of as company mill towns and commercial fishing depots. It was not a place where anyone would holiday. I grew up in Ladner, BC.  BackRead more

Plein Air at Lake O’Hara 2015

Lake OHara, Yoho National Park is a magnificent place. Every day was an immersion, an extraordinary adventure, both physically and visually. Senses intensify as you enter the alpine above the tree lines knowing you won’t get back anytime soon. The window of time to paint goes quick as you must begin the long trek back to base camp at Lake O’Hara before sundown. In the evenings we sat on the shores of the lake watching a late summer light show – the ever changing curtainRead more
