See this painting on the James Bay Art Walk. September 14 & 15, 11am - 5pm. My venue is the James Bay Community School, 140 Oswego Street, Victoria, BC. Also available: prints of select Oystercatcher art images that make nice gifts.
I am taking a break from painting to (among other things, such as biking to and from Sooke Potholes with camping gear) grow this magnificent 5-pound urban cabbage. It's sitting on a great book called "Digging The City" by Rhona McAdam.
This is the last of the Oystercatcher painting until early August. Oystercatchergirl is leaving shortly for Haida Gwaii to, among other things, volunteer with the Laskeek Bay Conservation Society, where I visited in 2009.
Hope you can join me at the Bowker Creek Brush-Up in Victoria, on Sunday August 11th. Please see below for announcement about my new art prints.
"I love your new work! However, I had to console some oystercatchers this week who were feeling neglected. I assured them that no love was lost and that they are now part of a larger family. It must have worked because they took off happily and made more noise than ever." -- J.C., Victoria, BC, naturalist extraordinaire
New! I've made prints from a selection of my "Oystercatchers" art series. (Please see further details, below.)

"Artists don't flock to BC to paint portraits of Joint Review Panel members, or to marvel at oil pipelines, clear-cuts, or corporate mining company headquarters in Vancouver. Tourists don't come to admire Emily Carr or Roy Henry Vickers paintings of soup cans or French ballerinas." -- A.H.
