Painter of Maritime Life

Gallery Two

Island Shadows (1999)

Painted in oils on panel, this large image portrays a somewhat paradoxical story of isolation, peace, and reverence. The setting sun casts long shadows across the land while the elderly fisherman sits in his fish shack doorway, reflecting on a life now far behind him.

 

 

 

 


Chester Yacht Club (1997)

I just had to capture this building. The Chester Yacht Club has a long and interesting history - Chester Race Week being a summer ritual. In this image a young person heads out to the basin in her pram while other prams rest quietly on the lush green grass. The scene at the top of the frame is that of Chester Basin as viewed from the yacht club.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Atlantic Steamer (1997)

Relief carved in poplar, Atlantic Steamer chugs merrily along. Childhood toys and tales of spirited adventure influenced this bright and fun carving.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Rolling Home (1989) This work was influenced by the sea song, Rollin' Home to Old Maui. Painted in acrylics on whale vertebrae, this is one in a series of ten which were completed while I lived in Cheticamp. I have also painted on several whale ribs.
