Christmas Wreaths

Two Christmas wreaths that I created. The Killer Whale design is for a friend who loves the ocean and killer whales. The Four Feathers design is combined the the Four Directions/Medicine Wheel. Each wreath is hand painted and ringed with coastal cedar, as well as varnished for weather resistance. I’m happy to make one for you if you’re interested. I’m happy to ship anywhere across Canada or the USA.

Little Sun

This sun was a happy distraction. My 3 year old daughter was sitting on my lap while I was working on another project and wanted to use my paint brushes. I got her colouring with pencil crayons to distract her, and ended up getting distracted myself.

Salmon on

I like the movement in this one. The salmon twisting on the line, the line getting shorter and the boat moving across the top on the water. Even the fisherman’s rod gets lower as he gets tired from fighting the fish.

Moon and Salmon

IMG_0750

A commissioned piece. The moon is shining bright and as she shines down on the water, the salmon that are swimming in the moonlight are showing their colours. If you look closely, you’ll see that the salmon that are not in the moonlight are visible, but not as easily seen as the ones in the light. The moon pays homage to the Cree Four Directions (the owner is Cree) as well as showing the mountains as eyebrows and Coast Salish canoes in/as her eyes.  22″ X 33″ – Private Collection

Okanagan Sun and Family Tree

IMG_2354

I completed this two panel piece for my best friend and family. The premise is that the big Okanagan Sun (where they live) is shining down on their family. The animals in the tree represent the members of the family, the land in the painting is a representation of Okanagan lake. The roots of the tree touch the ground where their house is located in relation to the lake.

Hunting Salmon

This piece is titled “Hunting Salmon.” My thoughts behind the design was that the pod of killer whales are circling and hunting for salmon. The salmon on the other hand are staying close together and hiding in the sea kelp. I had a sketch of one of the killer whales that I had been wanting to do something with for quite some time, I really like the “modern, fast” feel of the killer whales.
