Collection of the Artist
Mary Ann and I were waiting for our side-by-side massage at the Wickaninnish Inn, Tofino, and I asked our masseur for some paper and a pencil so I could draw these scenes. These were completed in about ten minutes before we entered the massage room. The room has a large opening facing the sea. Most often, I draw sketches, some with watercolours, take photographs, prior to completing paintings. This affords me the opportunity to think about the painting, and what to include. I love the BC coast, and am painting more scenes of this nature. Scenes like this, and there are many are inspiring to capture a moment's emotion of land and sea.
