Overview 24" X 24" X 1 1/2" Oil on Canvas painted on the sides so that it is ready to hang.

I am looking forward to going on some helicopter tours in a few of my favourite spots and if you look at this painting you can see why. I leave the interpretation to you.

The Edge

The Edge 48" X 36" Oil on 1 1/2" canvas, painted on the sides

We are heading out to the area that inspired this abstract painting. The red earth, dramatic shadows and incredible skies. When I start my abstract paintings I don't have a particular image in mind. The painting tells me which direction to go. Now the paintings are telling me where to travel for inspiration. Stay posted.

Coastline 14" X 18" Oil on Canvas

After spending considerable time trying to paint with acrylics I just had to dig up my oils. This was my first effort back with my oil paint. I love the richness of oils and the way I can blend and overlap the layers.

This was a quick acrylic painting that I did after a workshop. I love the clouds at this time of the year. This image, original and prints are available on Fine Art America.

Rainy day

Continuing on the Porteau sketches this one was warmer. The clouds were heavy laden. Love it.

Projection, 18" X 36" X 1 1/2" Oil on Canvas

The thing is, how do you title a painting? I know the images that I have in mind when I am painting. They are images of the landscape and they come to me in layers as I paint. I try to name the paintings abstractly so that you may put your own interpretation to the painting. This painting is available on my website.

Porteau Cove

I did a few watercolour sketches when camping at Porteau Cove. It was very damp and the clouds were incredible. The blessing is that I could take the dog for a walk and then come back to my van and warm up and do some drawing and quick sketches before heading out again.

It's been awhile. Life has its dramas which makes for some interesting stories. The one thing that is consistent is the way that I can get lost in a painting. This one is of a heron that I painted before. I thought I would try and make him more melancholy.
