Seascape Study 11x14

Waddenzee, Netherlands, Acrylic, 7x10"

The Wadden Sea (Dutch: Waddenzee, German: Wattenmeer, Low German: Wattensee, Danish: Vadehavet, West Frisian: Waadsee) is an intertidal zone in the southeastern part of the North Sea. It lies between the coast of northwestern continental Europe and the range of Frisian Islands, forming a shallow body of water with tidal flats and wetlands. It is rich in biological diversity. In 2009, the Dutch and German parts of the Wadden Sea were inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List.

'Camas Meadow'

Hello everyone!
This is a piece I painted in one of the parks here in
Victoria last week. Our native Camas Lily's are in full
bloom now and I have been trying to get out to paint
them as often as possible.
Oil on wood panel 12 x 16.
Your thoughts & comments always appreciated.

inner harbour 2 REVISED

No longer the 'inner harbour' . . . just wherever your imagination takes you! I've lightened the top and darkened the bottom a bit. Comments?

inner harbour 2

I left out the busy background of the harbour, boats and street to give more attention to the subject. It makes for a strange backdrop . . . more like a prairie lakeshore. :)
