"Wild Lavender" oil 4x6


Whoops - the usually constrained lavender broke loose some little while ago, taking only the bees with it.
Central BC roadside sketch - it's a TINY painting, people!

"500 St.Charles" w/c 4.5 x 6.5 inches


We pass many homes on our walks here in Victoria, on what I call 'the edge of greatness.'

We like this one which looks as though it could be modelled on a church.

We like the way the sun strikes the walls, giving the house a bit of a glow.

"Holland Point painting 2019" oil 8 x 10 inches


My database reveals that I have painted this location SEVEN times here in Victoria Canada.
It started as an overcast day, and this is the lighting I have shown here.

"Fort Street" watercolour


Sundown on the street beneath my feet.  Fort Street from the balcony of our condo. We are on the edge of greatness here as the smart suburb is just across the road, the homes date from around the eighteen hundreds.

"Willows Beach" watercolour 4x6


                                            "Willows Beach" sunny January day in 2019

Thanks for your comment on this one. I did realize afterwards that it turned out well even tho it's so tiny 11cm x 16cm (or four-and-a-half inches by six-and-a-half inches) which if I try to sell it in an unframed double mat board, postage will be extra depending on where you reside.
My well-to-do friends can afford it. If someone really likes it he/she will find me on social media and contact me.
But back to "Willows Beach 2019" Nobody paints exactly like this, I'm modest when I say that the beauty that you see in this painting comes from within me - the actual scene is accurate (one can go here and recognize the place) but the treatment comes from within. This is me. The way I see life and my unique reaction painted on my watercolour painting paper.

This is the small B&W prep sketch I always do before commiting to paint:

That's it in a nutshell.
