In Calm Waters


Last summer I fished for cod , in Newfoundland, in an area where a lone minke whale was feeding. The water that evening was flat calm and the whale was after some sort of small fish that flickered on the water. It got close to us at times as we fished for cod. This painting tries to capture that moment in time as I remember it. This is an 18' x 24" acrylic painting on panel.


October Fog



In mid October, 2007 , I was in Newfoundland and one morning at day break I got some great reference photos of fog . There was frost in the air that caused a mysterious fog and it was so quite around the local harbour . Most boats had already been pulled out of the water in preparation for the approaching winter .



This painting tries to capture the the atmosphere that morning. Its a 24" x28' acrylic on canvas over panel.
