Landscapes

Barber Pole

I found endless fascination walking Vancouver’s streets looking for images. This one was from the East End, on Hastings Street.

Near Big Bar

A friend owned a fishing camp in BC’s Cariboo. A bunch of us guys from North Van gathered there yearly for fishing, card games, darts, ping pong, skeet shooting, horse shoes, dirt biking, bicycling, drinking and whatever-else-have-you. Currently, the aging guys golf in the Okanagan instead.

Birkenhead Lake

  When Janice and I took a trip to Birkenhead Lake we couldn’t have been more surprised to encounter the evil little terrior, Rufus. He was standing atop a picnic table snarling at us – the same dog that terrorized anybody who came to visit me in Pemberton Heights. This is another image I traded(…)

Winter Branches

  This place was two doors away from where I lived in North Van at the time.

Forest Lake

Heavy Snow

  We passed this place just about every day on our way into Barriere. The shed pictured was part of the Horne Ranch. I think it was pretty much abandoned at this point in time but I took the liberty of putting lights in the windows

Fawn Lake Cabins

Fawn Lake Cabins. Acrylic on canvas. 11×14″ Available. This painting was done in 1999 as a commission for the owner of the resort. She told me to paint whatever I liked as long as it was recognizable as the resort. She hadn’t told her husband about our arrangement though and, when I drove the one(…)

Moon Over Strawberry Hill

Moon Over Strawberry Hill, Kamloops. Acrylic on canvas. 24×48″. Available. Moon Over Strawberry Hill was completed as 2012 came to a close. One sunny day in the fall, blank canvas in hand, I hiked to a lookout on land owned by Thompson Rivers University. There I completed a fairly detailed pencil sketch. Although the painting(…)
