Notes from the painter: “To stand quiet and alone with these arbutus trees during a late summer morning is to find the spirit of the place, resting next to my bones with the slow beat of my heart keeping time with their gentle rhythm.”

SOLD This Past Week

In October, this large 40 x 30 inch work left the gallery for a trial visit. However, the art collector had a challenging location and the painting didn’t work in that first desired location. But rather than giving up, she tested in another location… and then another location. The third time was charmed. We saw a sneak preview Last week and believe “When I am Among the Trees” will be most happy there, doing its job of taking the viewer for a walk through the trees into the spirit of the place. And so another large landscape painting leaves Mayne Island, and crosses the Strait of Georgia, for a more urban adventure.

Arbutus by the Trail – small contemporary landscape painting

Low November light drifts across the large rocks from the south. The warm hues gather further visual warmth from the Arbutus trees beside the trail.

The loose and strong impressionist style brushstrokes of this study give a clear sense of the swiftly moving winter light in the briefest of moments. If we are to blink the moment the will pass and the forest would again be shrouded in the dull greys predominant during a west coast winter. This painting in a reminder that there are moments with dazzling magic in this winter rain forest. We just need to catch them.

Arbutus on Mt. Parke – landscape oil painting

Morning lifts heavy mist from the highest places while the sun dances cheek-to-cheek with the late October shadows. As these arbutus trees extend themselves in prayer, angels dissipate into the warmth gathering on top of the Mayne Island Mt. Parke ridge.
