San Juan Islands Commission

I recently finished a diptych (two piece painting) for a couple who have a cabin in the San Juan Islands.  They wanted a painting that resembled the view they have from their living room window:

After thinking for a while about how I could come up with a composition with trees, beach, mountains and ocean, I drew up a simple sketch that met with their approval:

and I began the painting(s). 

The finished piece: 

 "Lazing on a Sunny Afternoon"                                              36" x 72" (36x36 ea) 

 They were very pleased with the painting and were kind enough to send me a photo of how it looks hanging above their fireplace:

I enjoyed tackling a new composition idea and working with people who allowed me to be as creative as I needed to be.  (Thanks J & C!)

Jenkins Showler Gallery Opening New Location Today

Jenkins Showler Gallery is opening their doors to a new location today at

The Shops at Morgan Crossing
Unit 101 - 15735 Croydon Drive
Surrey, British Columbia, Canada
V3S 2L5

I am exhibiting these 2 pieces for the first time at Jenkins Showler:

The Love that Surrounds Me 1 and 2                             36" x 36" ea

These two pieces hanging together are 3 high by 6 feet long and give the viewer a feeling of being surrounded by lush cedars in one of British Columbia's grand forests.

Making a trip to this new location makes for a great day of visiting beautiful shops and restaurants.
