"Dinghy - Oak Bay Marina" acrylic 6x8

Local artists enjoy painting the tenders on the small beach at the Oak Bay Marina. This dinghy seems to have gathered a pool of rain over some time but it still looks serviceable to me. Yachties come ashore and take the bus to town to shop for supplies.

Tennis Madrid 2017

Sketching from the TV is good exercise in swiftness and bravado. Tennis season is upon us. Nadal versus art, and urban sketching won in straight sets!

"Mount Baker - late afternoon" oil 11x14

We artists on Vancouver Island live about 75 miles from Mount Baker on the mainland, and we paint it often. Known by it's local name, Kulshan, she stands like a beacon in the Pacific Northwest.

I think the mountain is more than a geographical phenomenon - I'm sure she impacts us in many ways, some of them undefinable.
