Bob’s Beer

Bob is an old friend from the newspaper industry.

Cat on a Rail

  I liked the way the cat blended with its’ surroundings.

Chu Chua Summer

This little girl was in the bleachers at a ball game we were playing in Chu Chua. I added the background.

St. Pauls’ Church

                                                  St. Paul’s is in North Vancouver, where I grew up. I used metallic acrylic to render the metal spires. My mother still has this hanging in her apartment.


  Thoroughbred was a commission from the people that owned this highly strung horse. Getting in the corral with him to get some photos was a little scary.

After the Rain

  The dogs belonged to my former boss. This image is from a waterfront farm he owned on North Pender Island. Going there with him was one of the many perks of that job.


  Another up close and personal image from this time period. Detail and composition.

Uncle Don

  Uncle Don was my first acrylic portrait commission. My aunt’s favourite artist was Miro while Don was an Electrical Engineer – thus the props. I think it stands up well in it’s simplicity.


  I did several images around this time that were up close and personal. Mostly about detail and composition.

New Sneakers

                                                      The subject was actually stepping off a curb, but I thought the water made it more interesting.
