Original oil painting on canvas - Hobbs- the others in the flock always looked to Hobbs, for he was the one to find the freshest patches of new meadow grass. He believed that his home was his home and was the best place to be, and that the grass was certainly not always greener on the other side, and if he was clever, he would always find it.

Nature holds a special place in my heart, as do animals. They are constant sources of inspiration for my work. Through painting, I seek to express aspects of the emotional connections we have to nature and animals. Living on an island off the coast of Vancouver, I feel very connected to the land and sea around me. The local seascapes inspire me in many ways. For me they capture a time and place that is both personal and familiar. Often, they will suggest a narrative, or story if you will. In my process, I usually sketch in charcoal first, to roughly work out an idea for a painting, working directly onto the canvas, occasionally referring to my photos. While painting, I will often have a fleeting thought, from a walk or a dream, that will bring me further insight for the painting. Painting allows me time each day to pause and reflect on what is most meaningful to me. I like to think that by painting the beauty of what I feel for so deeply, I can create moods for others to reflect on and enjoy. This is the true spirit of my work.
