Gibsons is a unique place. For this steep hillside town overlooking a busy harbour I captured what I felt were the important elements that do not go unnoticed by me. From top to bottom we have the freeness of the bird flying overhead. The Market sign beckons our community to share in its inclusive space and school road cuts upwards through the homes on the hill. How many times have we gone up and down that road! The paddlers are out in their outrigger and other boats float lazily by. Docks allow us to walk out on water and a whale eye watches from below. The three men in a boat are my constant companions on my art journey and they are also there plying the waters. The characters below represent the incredible richness of people who love this town. They look at us directly in a welcoming gesture to come in and visit. There are always sailboats on the water around here and they make my town so much better as they add a grace to the scene.
