Sky and Sea in three west coast contemporary landscape paintings

These three recent paintings are mostly sky with the sea playing an important but supporting role in the landscape composition. Due to the similarity of subject and the orientation of the viewer, they are being released together.

The first contemporary landscape painting captures dusk on the winter west coast of Canada sea with clouds washed in colour.

The second painting tells the story about how the fog has been hesitant to raise her skirts resulting in a poem to accompany the work.

PROMISE

The fog has been hesitant to raise her skirts
much above her knees on the island ridges.
We can’t really blame her.

After all, we have been gawking without shame,
seeking even the tiniest glimpse of blue sky and
sunlight between her cottony ruffles.

Today though,
within the deep winter quiet,
we are given brief moments of reprieve
from her dowdy grey garments.
It was not a dazzling display
but enough to leave us momentarily content,
hopeful even.

The third and final painting renders a  storm as it breaks in the late afternoon sky leaving behind a rainbow mountain and pink sky.

Each painting has been approached to bring you into the landscape, experience its fullness and moment of wonder. Their simplicity of structure is purposeful and a deliberate intention to ask for your pause and reflection on the landscape as you pass through a time of contemporary busyness.
