West Coast Miniature

This miniature painting was inspired by a recent trip to the beautiful west coast of Vancouver Island, where the site and sound of the waves along the beach were absolutely wonderful.

Titled “West Coast Waves”, this mini painting measures 1.75 x 5.25 inches in size and is painted in acrylic on paper board.

A Walk Through the Park – in miniature

I find few things lovelier than a leisurely stroll through a beautiful park, on a very fine spring day. Largely, I suspect, because I don’t have to battle allergies that accompany spring’s grand arrival.

This painting depicts springtime in Beacon Hill Park, Victoria BC.
