The Lulu Island

This is my latest painting. It's acrylic, 36X31 inches. The image is taken from a photo by crew aboard the SVCurtsy in Pender Harbour. The tugboat that inspired this painting is now at the bottom of the Harbour. Recently SOLD at auction.

Winter Sunrise on the Estuary

Winter Sunrise on the Courtenay River estuary. This is an acrylic painting 40X 30 something. Sold at auction last year in Victoria at a Together Against Poverty Society fundraiser.

Winston

Image
So, Winston is a bloodhound rescued by my longtime friend, Bill Brehl who lives near Ottawa.  He's a great guy and a rescuer of bloodhounds along with his wife, Andrea Brehl.  They have 3 bloodhounds and assorted other pets.  Bill took a picture of one of his bloodhounds, Winston, as he was staring out the window during a rainstorm.  I was inspired by Bill's photo to do this acrylic painting of Winston.  It was great fun to do.  I've wanted to use the 'chiaroscuro' technique for some time and this painting demonstrates that (in my mind).  It's 16X20 inches. It lives with Bill and Andrea.

More derelict boats.
