Bits and Pieces - Notes from the outside looking in...
Going back to my simple life, you will notice to your left an image of my latest painting titled: "Morning Mist". I was inspired to paint this tranquil scene from a photograph I took one foggy morning. I am continually amazed of the simple beauty that is around us...I just have to look for it. The original painting is 14x18 inches, and I have Giclee museum, archival quality canvas prints available for those that might be interested in purchasing a canvas print, further information is available in the Nature Gallery segment of this web site.

I am presently working on a 24x30 inch painting of the Canadian Forces Cormorant Search and Rescue (SAR) helicopter performing a difficult mountain rescue. It will be a fine tribute to the highly professional SAR aircrews who continually put their lives on the line often under very difficult conditions to save lives. This painting is proving challenging to capture the mountainous environment the portrayed rescue is being conducted....will keep you informed as the painting progresses.

So, til the next time, I wish you all a safe, and happy  summer season,
