This is a commission I have just completed for a friend who recently retired. He wanted to send notes to his staff and colleagues and wanted a distinctive notecard for them. This is based on an image of the building where he worked.. I am happy to tell you the cards were well received. .
This is your last chance to visit the the show. at the Shenkman Arts Centre -- Trinity Gallery, Salon B

The Opening Reception for the Shenkman solo show was this afternoon and it went extremely well. I was delighted to see a lot of familiar faces and to welcome many old friends and to make new ones. The show goes on until April 17, so you still have time to catch it. I hope you will.
A lighthouse, another part of Canadian history that helped keep sailors safe from dangerous and rocky shores. We found this one off the north coast of Gaspé, now a peaceful and quiet part of the world.
This was one of the first views that greeted us when we got off the ferry in Newfoundland. Although it was mid-June, we could see patches of snow on the hills. My image of Newfoundland had been a rocky shore -- like the south shore of the Island actually is, but this reminded me more of Vancouver Island -- a truly stirring sight.
We came into this little fishing village just at the end of the day. The port was busy with the boats coming in with the day's catch. This is mounted on wood panel and finished with resin. 16"x16".
This wonderful location had served as a family fishing and fish processing camp for years before they donated it to the province as a museum. It was extremely well-preserved and the processing of salt cod was well explained in the red building right on the water. I love these wild and isolated places where human impact on the land seems gentle and harmless.
