Saturna Island

Saturna Island: Acrylic on Paper (12″ x 14″)

During a ten-day stay on Saturna Island at my brother Mike’s home there, we started going on walks through the woods as a way of breaking up the day.

One day we walked through a forest and emerged right onto the southern tip of the island. I was immediately struck by the gorgeous bright yellow colour of the dried out grass contrasting with the deep shadows and lush green on the floor of the forest, framed on top not by a band of blue sky, but the bright blue ocean just beyond the grass-coloured bluff.
