Nice when the moon is out, when it disappears the islands and mainland become one big, black shape.

Georgian Bay gets rough in a hurry and finding a flat camping spot out of the wind on an island like this is great.
A huge thunderstorm with torrential rain is quite enjoyable from inside a tent. Bring a good book.

I canoed out into a foggy waterway some years ago and have made a couple of attempts at making a print of the experience. The best I seem to do is to show one frame of what should be a movie. It looks foggy but nothing is emerging out of, nor disappearing into, the mist.
After a couple days of warm Spring weather it is snowing again. I posted this as a reminder that warm weather is on its way.
From inside this heavily shaded woods the sunlight pouring through the trees seemed absolutely brilliant. And warm:-)
The ‘black’ is actually violet but looks more naturally black than black ink did; a trick I borrowed from oil painters.
Just when I thought I was safely out of the woods, another landscape. This was from a sketch I did last summer in the 30,000 Islands, an archipelago in northeast Georgian Bay. It shows one ten thousandth of the islands.
Time is running out!!!
Recent Engravings by yours truly, a colourful, thought provoking departure from my usual barns and trees and barns and trees and barns…
These are much more abstract, more ‘graphic’, more insightful than most of my work over the past couple of decades.

A ‘transition’ piece that used landscape to illustrate an engraving I created with survivors of all types in mind. I wanted to present the bleakness of their recent past coupled with the potential that the future held, but held without any guarantees.
