Pebbles on Bayfield Beach, Lake Huron

14" x 18" acrylic on stretched canvas; finished edges ready to hang. 2016

Artist's Notes: Not everything landscape is big and distant.  This view is of pebbles on a beach at Bayfield, a charming small village with a very busy yachting harbour and tourist mainstreet on Lake Huron's shoreline.  This view catches the sun reflecting off stones and pebbles, casting shadows.  Darker lines in the sand are from the runoff of the water back towards the lake as the waves come in and out.  Leaves and seaweed sit forgotten.

Fishing Village, Quebec North Shore

24" x 48" acrylic on stretched canvas; finished edges ready to hang. 2009

Artist's Notes: This canvas portrays a charming fishing village along Quebec's North Shore, between the city of Sept-Iles and the border of Labrador.  It was settled long ago by hardy Newfoundlanders.  On this day the morning sun lit up the fishing shacks.  A trawler is seen chugging out onto the St. Lawrence for a day of cod fishing. Note the rocky shore!

Day At The Beach, Cavendish, P.E.I.

16" x 20" acrylic on stretched canvas; finished edges ready to hang. 2010

Artist's Notes: Prince Edward Island just may be the most charming place in Eastern Canada...The Cavendish beaches along its northern coast were the setting for Lucy Maud Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables.  The red sand beaches are pretty and inviting.  Mind you, the water's cold!

Lake Huron Sunset, Goderich

12" x 16" acrylic on stretched canvas; finished edges ready to hang. 2007

Artist's Notes: Lake Huron is one of the five Great Lakes.  All but Lake Michigan are shared with our American cousins.  Lake Huron prides itself as being Ontario's West Coast, and the place were you will find the most breath-taking sunsets possible, such as this height of land overlooking the lake near Goderich.

Round Bales, Denfield, Ontario

16" x 20" acrylic on stretched canvas; finished edges ready to hang. 2002

Artist's Notes: Ontario is not all cottage country or big city urbanity.  In fact, it is Canada's largest producer of agricultural products.  Here is a typical scene near Denfield in southwestern Ontario.  By early June, first cutting of hay is done and it's round baled and left drying in the sun.  Many fields will replicate this scene twice annually. I have often remarked how they remind me of pills spilled out onto a table and standing on edge!

Rock Glen Falls, Arkona, Ontario

10" x 12" acrylic on canvas board - 2006

Artist's Notes: Ontario is not quite flat, except along it's northern Arctic coast and down in the southwest.  The Bruce Trail edges along the Niagara Escarpment in southern Ontario.  In the southwest, rivers meander their way through former forests that are now farmland.  Here and there water falls, as it does at Rock Glen, outside the village of Arkona, falling into the Ausable River.  The falls at Rock Glen are pretty and run all year, albeit less in winter and during any long dry spells.  At those times, you can pick fossils out of the cliff.  At the park above the falls is a small archaeology museum worth a visit

Russel Island Light, Tobermory, Ontario

10"x12" acrylic on stretched canvas, finished edges, ready to hang - 2008

Artist's Notes: This typical red and white striped lighthouse greets passengers aboard the Chee-Cheeman ferry coming from Manitoulin Island into Tobermory  Harbour. The lighthouse along with the keeper's home and lifeboat are on a point of land on Russel Island, one of numerous offshore islands that are part of Fathom Five National Marine Park, the best place for scuba diving in Canada, with dozens of shipwrecks in shallow waters. Lighthouses like this warned ship captains of unseen danger.

Cove Near Amphritite Point, Ucluelet, BC

12" x 16" acrylic on canvas board; unframed. 1999

Artist's Notes: Water laps at the black volcanic rocks at this cove on Vancouver Island's west coast, near Ucleulet.  I sat on rocks and sketched initially in pastel.  The dark rocks and white driftwood logs (bleached by the sun) contrasted nicely, and tall fir trees behind made it a quiet and private moment.  I was alone on the beach.  When I left the beach I noticed a nearby sign warning of a cougar in the area!  Beware!

Country Bridge By Meadow, Brinsley, Ontario

12" x 16" acrylic on canvas board; unframed. 2004

Artist's Notes: How can I ever forget painting this bridge with no name? It was early April, mild after a cold winter, yet not really warm.  I painted this "plein aire"...in the open, sitting amidst beef cows grazing nearby in the meadow.  The Ausable River was flush with spring runoff, and I sat perched on a folding chair with easel after riding with them strapped to my bike from 20 kilometres away on dirt roads and up hills.
