Stars Come Out

Pachena Bay, British Columbia

As the sun goes down whales can be heard singing into the night. Their song is a hauntingly beautiful music that travels far and wide. How special to have spent hours exploring the rich vegetation and hiking trails around Pachena Bay. It is a unique and idyllic experience to encounter the nature here. Looking back on the day there were many delightful surprises. Bears, sea lions, bald eagles… so much to see.

When the stars come out there is an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for the day. A happy contentment. Just being here is so rewarding. We are close to Bamfield and the West Coast Trail.

The rainforest catches my eye, so lush in all its textures and colours. The landscape softly hugs the bay and opens up in a gradual way… with white sandy beach as far as the eye can see. The skies truly come to life in this gentle stretch of beach of marine life. Here on a nice log of driftwood I will sit and make my wish upon a star. Plan my future and dream my dreams to someday capture the essence of this west coast moment with paint and brush.

Beneath the Stars

Chesterman Beach – Tofino, British Columbia

Pacific Rim National Park Reserve of Canada is a place infinite in its mystical beaches and powerful tides. For an artist it is a landscape forever changing and full of treasures. The white sand paradise of Chesterman Beach and tidal pools of marine life offer hours of fascination. The waves are magnificent and the fine sea mist is so refreshing. When night time fog blends with the salty air, you can hear hundreds of barnacles opening and closing. All at once hidden life forms shift with the tide.

Beneath the Stars, this cradle of salt water and sand is all I need. As darkness falls, I take one last look of this rugged west coast. My vision adjusts, my mind roams. There is so much beauty to mingle with here. My eyes traverse the paths of the constant stars. The skies open up with an evening show of constellations. Time stretches on forever. It is no surprise that few people have ever wanted to leave Tofino, British Columbia.

Each morning I have awakened to the language of the ocean, its roar and rhythm, which wrap and envelop all life. To be one with this coastal landscape adds new focus and inspiration to my work. Painting these inner souvenirs will eventually grow like the sand and grit in a mussel shell. Something perfect like a pearl, and all in good time.
