True to my nature and love of small places, when traveling to Canada I choose the small islands of Quadra, Cortes, and Vancouver Island, to enjoy. I usually choose to stay in one place each trip to be able to take it all in. I feel you have to take time to learn about the environment by studying it to be able to create a painting specific to that area.
I have an inner need to paint the wonderful scenes of the places I visit. So painting nature and landscapes in Canada while I travel is part of the journey.
