The awakening of the soul
An epiphany like the blowing of a trumpet.

I strived for movement and height and vitality in the forest above the beaver dam.

Kicking Horse Flats

This work evolved from a plein air study of the Kicking Horse Flats, east of town.  It has lots of color and power and movement in the sky and upper mountains.

Drama above and serenity below.

Creek Behind our Home

This little creek runs behind our mountain home.  The reality is.......everything in the stream is a blending of hues between black and white. I painted colour into it. After all, isn't the job of the artist to improve nature?
