Majestic birds, and we have a lot in our area. Sometimes they swoop so low over the yard, I worry about our cat. Earlier this year an eagle swooped up a mongrel toy poodle in Sechelt, but luckily dropped it on the grounds of a nursing home. The puppy is fine now, and has a new home. They call her 'Miracle May". SOLD
My computer crashed :[ so I haven't been able to post any new paintings. I have a new laptop, so hopefully I'll be back on track and posting soon. Question - why on earth do they have to change the placement of keys? My cap key is now my \slash key, my delete key is now pg dn. Very frustrating.

Another painting of my favourite flowers - roses. Amazing how something so pretty can actually be quite vicious. I had a neighbour once who said she would take clippers and cut every single thorn from her rose bushes. I can't imagine how long that would have taken her. Think I'd rather take my chances with the thorns!

Here is another little painting for our Christmas Show. My camera just isn't picking up all the subtle colours in the Northern lights, or in the trees. I'll have to find a better place to take my photos. SOLD

I'm switching to some fun, 8x8" landscapes. We have a Christmas Show at the gallery in a couple of weeks. Hard to think about Christmas when I'm still picking dahlias outside. But, it definitely is on its way.

This is a lovely, old gnarled cedar in Roberts Creek. You can access the beach, but you have to fight your way through brambles, roots and branches. I've painted this previously in a larger format, but have always wanted to paint it again. SOLD
