These paintings were exhibited in the Oak Bay Library, Victoria, BC, throughout December.
Yours truly at Oystercatcher Central is on a little artistic side-trip. The above paintings are shown individually, below.
It all started when a good friend, who has a garden in Duncan, British Columbia, suggested that I paint something pertinent to her region. Until then, it hadn't occurred to me to depict anything other than ... oystercatchers!
Here are the fruits of that happy request. I hope the results aren't too drab and morose.

Thank you to all who attended the Oak Bay Studio Tour (Nov 5 & 6). Generous oystercatcher arts patrons from Nanaimo have now given a new home to "Oystercatchers #277". Sending my profuse thanks to Paul for his loyal help with the Oak Bay Studio Tour, and to Ron for expert assistance with art sales.

Announcing Oystercatchers #190 (48" x 12"), just purchased by a Vancouver patron of the oystercatcher arts. This long, tall deep-forest painting was inspired by a visit to Haida Gwaii, where I volunteered for oystercatcher research with the Laskeek Bay Conservation Society.
