Fierce Blue ~ Kingfisher

Fierce Blue ~ 6″ x 6″ oil on canvas covered hardboard. SOLD!

I am lucky enough to live near the ocean. Bella Coola is actually located right at the end of an inlet and instead of beaches, we have steep mountains plunging into the sea, much like the Fjords of Norway. It would explain why the Norwegians decided to settle here…it reminded them of home.

Anyways, every Sunday I go for a jog near the tide flats with my dog, and every Sunday I see this little guy, sitting on the telephone line, or diving like a torpedo into the water, hoping for a catch. I have yet to see him succeed, but I enjoy his acrobatics and his distinctive rattle  call.

This little painting is up for sale at DailyPaintworks starting at $49. The auction will go live Tuesday morning. Click here to bid.

After a tumultuous past as a goat milker, laundress, fine art major, waitress and restaurant owner, I've now downscaled to running my own Cafe/Gallery in an effort to maintain a social life and make a few bucks. I live a ridiculously idyllic existence in a fairytale village called Bella Coola on the West Coast of British Columbia with my charming musician husband, two amazingly creative children, and a dog whose favourite past time is eating rotten dead fish and rolling in poo. In my not so spare time I love to invent healthy whole food recipes, write YA fiction, play guitar, or curl up in my favourite chair with a great book and a gigantic mug of strong black coffee, all while daydreaming of living in Ireland...
