Arbutus trees have their own contorted beauty.  This one is doing a dance in celebration of spring.

Beach Bum

I'm busy painting the studio, so not much time for any other painting.  I finished this little guy for the new show.  We had some nice wave action at Davis Bay when I took this photo - just right for a boogie board.  This young boy was making the most of the water.  Bit of a cheeky lad. SOLD

Casablanca White

I have these amazing Casablanca lilies in the perennial border, and I've always wanted to paint them.  I enjoyed playing with the shadow colours, and loved the way the petals curl on the flowers.  These were actually quite challenging, particularly since most of the large canvas is white, but think it came together quite nicely.  Wish I could have captured their amazing scent!

This is a 24x36 stretched canvas.
