Help me pick a name!!

I created this little guy as a request from one of my Etsy shop customers, but I can’t think of a name for him! I’m going to add him to the shop soon as a physical print, and I’m in the process of setting up a new section where you can buy my cute watercolourContinue reading “Help me pick a name!!”

Cowboy

Cowboy ~ 6″ x 6″ oil on canvas covered hardboard panel To be so blessed to live in the wilds on the North Coast of B.C. is such an amazing gift.

Chilcotin Blues

To get out of my little village of Bella Coola, we have to drive a crazy gravel road, dubbed by locals as “The Hill”. The Hill is a notoriously steep, unpaved stretch of Highway 20 that connects the Chilcoltin Plateau to the Bella Coola Valley. The 43-kilometre road ascends some 1,800 metres with grades asContinue reading “Chilcotin Blues”

Keeping Watch

Keeping Watch~ 6″ x 6″ oil on Raymar Canvas Panel I’m having a lot of fun with this red underpainting right now.

I have constantly fought withContinue reading “Keeping Watch”

The Prince ~ Young bull elk in velvet

The Prince ~ 6″ x 6″ oil on hardboard panel This little guy was a challenge from a fan to paint a white elk on a white background.
