Garden Art

I am taking a break from painting, to make time for reading and physical fitness (new pursuit is jogging!).  Look forward to returning to the Oak Bay Studio Tour on April 18 & 19, 2015.  Meanwhile, visits to my studio are welcome, by appointment please.  In December, I was on a roll making garden art.

Taking a break from art to grow a cabbage

I am taking a break from painting to (among other things, such as biking to and from Sooke Potholes with camping gear) grow this magnificent 5-pound urban cabbage.  It's sitting on a great book called "Digging The City" by Rhona McAdam.

Red-Breasted Sapsuckers too!


Red-Breasted Sapsuckers #1
72" x 18"

"I love your new work!  However, I had to console some oystercatchers this week who were feeling neglected.  I assured them that no love was lost and that they are now part of a larger family.  It must have worked because they took off happily and made more noise than ever." -- J.C., Victoria, BC, naturalist extraordinaire
