A Slice of American Pi

"A Slice of American Pi" was painted in honor of Pi Day! and Gina, the model for this one.

Sometimes life is crazy and chaotic..but some things are always a constant.

Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159. Pi Day is an annual opportunity for math enthusiasts to recite the infinite digits of Pi, talk to their friends about math, and to eat Pie.

The Cheshire Cat

I found two guitars in a dumpster back when I was living in Virginia. Both were damaged from being bashed around and out in the rain, so I gave them a new beginning with a fresh coat of paint and varnish. The second guitar is in the shop getting fresh strings! Pic to come soon.

This one is called: The Cheshire Cat

Florencia Bay

Oil 36x18x1.5

Nicknamed Flo by locals, Florencia Bay is surrounded by cliffs making a spectacular backdrop to the 6km beach. It is also common to see surfers and paddle boarders here. This spot is a little bit of a hike from the main beach.

Florencia Bay is one of the more quiet beaches and you will mostly see surfers, kayers, boogie boarders and paddle boarders.

Pop Art!

A painting I did for my daughter as she recently had to re-home Kit to me. Now I have a doggo!!

Something a Little Different

This was a commissioned painting project that was to go on either side of a fireplace. I pained them so that they could be viewed together or separated.

Long Beach, Tofino, BC

Pacific Rim National Park Reserve is a 511 km2 (197 sq mi) park located in British Columbia, Canada, which comprises three separate regions: Long Beach, the Broken Group Islands, and the West Coast Trail. It represents the Pacific Coast Mountains landscape which is characterized by rugged coasts and temperate rainforests.

Chesterman Beach, Tofino, BC

The Wild Pacific Trail carves through old-growth thickets of twisted trunks, roots, ferns and moss of the temperate coastal rainforest as it hugs the wild coastline of the Ucluth Peninsula. Watch the fury of the open Pacific Ocean with spectacular views of the rocky shoreline, Barkley Sound, and the Broken Group Islands from this easy to navigate trail.

West Coast Trail, BC

Brady’s Beach is located a short hike from West Bamfield, the town of Bamfield is one of those wondrous places that the Pacific Northwest seems to have in abundance. It’s like a community right out of a storybook. The beach is a short distance over the peninsula where West Bamfield is located. Bamfield has no paved road leading to it, you must travel to Port Alberni and then head west on a rough logging road for 90 km.

Lupin Falls, Strathcona Park, BC

Strathcona Provincial Park, designated in 1911, is the oldest provincial park in British Columbia. Located almost in the centre of Vancouver Island, Strathcona park is a rugged mountain wilderness comprising more than 250,000 hectares. Mountain peaks – some perpetually mantled with snow – dominate the park. Lakes and alpine tarns dot a landscape laced with rivers, creeks and streams. Summer in Strathcona is usually pleasantly warm.

Every Clipper Tells a Story

Every Clipper Tells a Story found its way back on to my easel, canoe just needed to be yellow and the water just a bit more green. I added a little more seaweed and put it back up on the wall for further contemplation.
