"SOMEDAY SAILOR' 8" X 10" Oil on canvas

Who knows what might be going through this little boy's mind as he looks at the opening to the bay from the harbor. Exploration? Fishing? America's Cup?  Weekend sailing? Dreams are often born early.

  4. I always enjoy your compositions with children. There always seems to be something so sweet and simple about the way to portray them:) Very restful:)

  5. Such a nice thing to say, Libby. Children are wonderful. Their actions, body language and expressions are so refreshing and sincere. To capture even a part of that in a painting is a success. Thanks so much for writing!

  6. Thank you, Claire, and I'm so delighted that you took the time to look. I had the treat of looking at your lovely work on your blog and was excited to learn you're from Victoria, B.C.
    I grew up near Seattle and have been fortunate to visit beautiful Victoria. So MUCH visual inspiration in that part of the world!!
