Capturing the energy I see around sailboats, these paintings reflect my love of sailing and the joy they bring whether you are watching them or at the helm. They represent journey, adventure and exploratiion using the breath of the wind as momentum.

Hidden within the sandstone cliffs of Valdez and Galiano Islands are faces that look out at us as we sail by. I draw furiously as we sail along capturing the shapes and characters that I see. Eventually they make their way into my bigger work as in this case. This painting has a joyful and celebratory atmosphere and knowing that the faces are looking out at you makes it fun to find them.
