As we approach the Easter long weekend family comes to mind and heart.
As we approach the long weekend for Easter, thoughts of family come to my mind and heart.  Families are held together with love and memories.  As we age the memories might fade a bit but the love stays strong. This image I ...

Spread your wings and fly!
Some times I am taken with an image, even though not perfect it captivates me.  This is one of those images, the sun was bright and the left hand side of the bird got blown out, but I liked the framing of the bird on the old ...

Cascade Falls - Mission, BC  
A Sunday drive through winding roads, scenic views, and photographing waterfalls.  Next time I will bring a tripod.
On Sunday I drove up to Cascade Falls.  It is one of those local spots that is relatively close yet you never seem to visit.  The drive is easy, about 45 minutes or so, and the hike up to the top lookout is a easy climb on a ...

The fields are filled with an abundance of daffodils so many different kinds, from the traditional bright yellow ones which were the norm when I grew up to the many new varieties.   This is my go to field to buy daffodils...

Clouds fascinate, so much movement, color, and texture.
A sky to dream upon, with it's soft swirls of pastel tints,  painting the sky with harmonious color.

My walk along a country road.
I have begun to park my car and venture out on foot both for the exercise as well as to see more.  I never would have seen this little bird singing, or the cat on the fence if I was driving. Although I might have got some sho...

The muddy creek becomes a thing of beauty.
Tonight I found this still creek, there was nothing remarkable about it, in fact the water was a dirty muddy brown. I looked closely and found beauty, as the bluish purple of the evening sky, the soft pink blush of the clouds...

Artist Statement

The creation of a painting is magical, watching it slowly come to life, the ebb and flow of placing colour, the brush moving across the canvas balancing each aspect until it becomes the vision I imagined. As I paint, memories often surface, of a time or place, it can bring back the feel of a gentle breeze on a summers day, or the scent of a fragrant rose, or even the sound of children laughing.

As a artist I am inspired by God's creation, natures beauty, the play of light, shadows, and reflections intrigue and challenge me.
