Through the Trees

A drive along the coast of Captiva Island is like a drive through the forest, alternating beach and lush tree growth with the smell of the ocean in the air. This piece was juried into the Capture Captiva exhibit.

North of Superior

Rocks and trees dominate this incredible landscape, harsh yet so much warmth and beauty infused into the landscape.

A quick 30 minute pose with nothing but the basics…charcoal. Sometimes simple turns out best.

Mixed media nudes

I like how watercolour pigments give a gentle wash to nudes however sometimes a crisp edge helps define the shape, these are watercolours with charcoal for definition.

Fireweed

I spent the summer touring Alaska by motorcycle. This year and last were a tough couple of years for forest fires, thousands of acres burned but much of it was so remote no suppression efforts were made. The year after the fire has been through the burn areas fill with fushia coloured fireweed, it’s a beautiful, colourful landscape . That’s what inspired this 9″x12″ oil on canvas board.
