"Little Shuswap Lake " - 12 x 9 Oil Lake Painting
"Little Shuswap Lake" 12x9 Oil on board Plein Air Painting
A clouded sunrise viewed from Chase Beach. The air was still when I arrived and then a steady breeze came off the lake as so often does when the day begins to warm up. I had to rug up even though it's early June.
I enjoy a simple composition of what is there, even though the land, the air, and the water are so terrifically powerful in both quiet, an energetic ways.
"ISOBEL LAKE" - 12 x 9 Oil Lake Painting
"Isobel Lake" 12x9 Oil on board Plein Air Painting
A hike around Isobel Lake and I found the opening to this view on a dull morning. A knocking sound beside me drew my attention to a duck nesting box fixed to a tree, a mother in their sitting on her eggs! Some time later she flew out.
This painting was sold on the trail before returning to my campsite!

"Birches" - - 9x12 Oil on Board
"Birches" 12x9 Oil on board Plein Air Painting
I find light on leaves enchanting. This small family of birches is young, however they live on a beach where the winds have roughened and weathered their trunks, but their leaves are new and vibrant in June.

"Osprey Tree" - 9x12 Oil Landscape Painting
"OSPREY TREE" (SKIMIKIN LAKE)
9" x 12" x .25" Oil on board
There was activity in this nest. I felt for these birds having to sit for hours to keep eggs cool in high the 30 and low 40 degree temps. The wild ones are so tough compared to us.

"Catkins" - 12 x 9 Oil Tree and Mountain Painting
"Catkins" 12x9 Oil on board Plein Air Painting
A very brisk -3 April morning in Arrowstone Park. Birds going about their nesting and mate calling and the creek behind these aspens tuned my senses to the atmosphere. Sunlight catching on the catkins of the aspens made a garland of light against the blue of the distant mountain and that inspired this painting.

"Lost Key Pine" - 12x9 Oil Tree Painting
"Lost Key Pine" - 12x9 Oil on board, Plein Air.
On the first day trip in the Turtle (camper) I went to Cooney Bay and then up to the Dewdrop Plateau. This pine spoke to me, so I set up my kit on the side of the dirt road and squeezed out a few colours. Not long after, an ATV came by and to my surprise it was a friend I hadn't seen in years. We spoke for a bit and he said he both lost and found his keys under that pine - what are the chances?
It would be interesting if trees could tell us of all the goings on they witness....
A Pine Day - 12 x 9 Tree painting Oil
A PINE DAY 12 x 9 Oil on board, Plein Air
I spent a whole day with this Ponderosa pine in stillness, grace and quiet. People came and went, children climbed its limbs, birds found food preening bark and cones. Sun and cloud, breeze and stillness, age and time.
I feel I most captured the space within and without of this fine crone tree.
