Whenever I finish a new painting or something newsworthy occurs, I will update this site. 

Currently I am also updating the site every Thursday with an image from my personal archive (scroll down.)    




November moves on - fall slides towards winter - and the creative juices are flowing in the studio!

Working on this right now - the latest painting in the Sunnyside Series - inspired by the beauty of my home waters of Cultus Lake. This photo was taken today (Thurs Nov, 15th, 2018.)

Just working now on the tree trunks and bushes, and doing some tweaking all around. Just about finished!


From Last Week.



From two weeks ago.


From three weeks ago.

Work in progress Oct 25th, 2018 - #36, Sunnyside Series, acrylic on canvas, 30" x 30". This painting is a view of the far eastern side of the Sunnyside shoreline, with the last dock, and Mount Amadis rising in the top left. 


Also working on this piece, which is almost finished.


"Water Spirit/Spirit of Water" acrylic on canvas, diptych - each panel 18" x 24." I started this painting about 12 years ago, had my daughter pose for the figure and did a sketch 6 or 7 years ago - and am just now getting around to finishing this piece - it's a total repaint at this point. Sometimes things have to steep for a while and wait for the right time to appear.


Also working on: 

- A Lindeman Lake painting - 36" x 48" Lindeman Lake is one of my favourite painting subjects. I've been working on this one for a while.


Finished a little painting a while back and added it to the Landscapes 2014 -18 Gallery. Click here to see this piece.

- a weekly post to my homepage. Images will appear on Thursdays and stay for one week only - 

An over one and a half year long feature to the website - images from my personal collection. These are all pieces that have not been seen before on this website. These images will include selected sketches from my sketchbooks, drawings, hand made prints, and paintings from my private collection, or other older previously purchased pieces. 

 Today, (Thursday November 15st, 2018) we have another drawing from my sketchbook of stumps done on one of my many hikes through the forests where I live at Cultus Lake. I have always been fascinated by the expressive nature of trees and stumps, and love to explore the forest looking for ones with character, with a story. 

Below the image is a link to a painting/drawing from my Stump Series 1986 - 90 that was inspired by the sketch on the left.



two stumps, pencil on paper, 8" x 10", 1990.
