Another kayak painting - sent to J D Stevenson Gallery in Chemainus. I must be having summer paddling thoughts because the kayak theme continues to turn up at my easel... This image was from some reference shots I took a few years ago in Haida Gwaii in the Queen Charlottes - with day after day of blue skies and the gorgeous expanse of water - marvelous paddling!!! Who says it always rains in the Charlottes?!?
These are my first paintings which have included a kayaker... I must be thinking about summer tripping plans! I was quite pleased by the result - the kayak does not dominate, but gives a point of connection into the painting. Both of these are on display at The Old Schoolhouse Gallery in Qualicum Beach right now. Unless they sell, they will be back in my studio for the Quadra Island Studio tour on the first weekend of June.
Welcome to my space to share my ruminations, inspirations and experimentations...
- as well as new work, information on my process and assorted random thoughts...
