"The Boatworks"

I'd like to first wish all my collectors and followers a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday season. I Hope to see everyone again in 2010.

Next I would like to share with you a special Christmas release. This piece is titled "The Boatworks". Since moving to Quadra Island 2 years ago, I am constantly amazed by the calibre and diversity of artists in this community along with the embracing support Islanders extend to each other. This piece represents an example of this generous community spirit. The Cape Mudge Boatworks features a local artist’s work on their annual Christmas card and this year commissioned my piece titled “The Boatworks”. A Great Blue Heron huddled against a winter morning’s mist provided further inspiration to this classic Quadra Island Landmark.
