Oil landscape paintings – three new releases and three to ship

The studio continues to be a busy place this spring with the ninth Canadian landscape oil painting this year purchased by a collector yesterday. But let’s start with the three new paintings being released this morning before I share with you the other three I must get packaged for shipping next week.

Holding the tension between the west coast land, sea and sky….

I like the idea of transcribing earlier photography and memory notes of a moment with paint. It is never exactly accurate but maybe possibly enough of a translation to be understood. This is of course Reef Bay on Mayne Island with its sandstone beach and winter seaweed resting on the stones. But the details are not as important to me as my desire to render the feeling of timelessness I experience in this particular place. This is what I am after. The sensation of being part of the moment rather than an observer.

Finally, we have a wee painting that is going to a family member in Vancouver B.C., Canada. Each of our eight children has been gifted a painting for one of their birthdays. I am not able to do everyone in the same year so the painting gifts are staggered over a few years. The person receiving the gift may choose any painting, regardless of size or price, that is available in my collection. After much thought and deliberation, this is the painting of choice for this individual.
