This is a 36×36 inch oil on canvas painting done in 1996. Lying on your back looking up through the trees at the clouds rolling by.
This piece is 24 x 30 inches, acrylic on canvas, from 2002. The most common question I get from people is “what are those black lines”? They are power lines alongside the highway. The bottom right side triangular shape is the shoulder of the highway with the white painted line. Humanity is added to the equation instead of unspoiled nature by including the road and the power lines.
Boundary Country in British Columbia is located on the Crows Nest highway (#3) east of Vancouver hugging the Canada/USA border. Dotted with homesteads from the early 20th century it feels like time stands still here. The area is sparsely populated and because it is high up in the mountains has 360 degree views of wide open sky.
Garibaldi Lake is a 3-5 hour hike above Squamish, British Columbia. The glacier fed lake is stunning and the water is cold. The area is populated with humming birds. There is overnight camping but you have to hike up with all your supplies. You can also access Black Tusk, an ancient volcanic chimney, if you continue on the trail.
During the mid 20th century Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada) was working hard to promote the ideal mid-century swinger lifestyle experience. Vancouver has many lozenge shaped buildings from this period. The elongated hexagon shape can be found all over the city to this day. The Electra Building was the big shining beacon over blocks of old wooden houses and started the obsession with this elongated hexagon shape. The Electra stands as one of the best examples of mid-century architecture in Canada.
This acrylic on board piece is 11x14inches. In this study of a tree I am developing the fractured effect. I was thinking of Central America not Canada with this piece. There are volcanoes in the background. I consider this piece to be a study or a sketch rather than a fully developed piece.
Redux because this painting was half finished for 7 years. I revisited it in 2014 as you can see in the before and after below.
