Three Stones


At the water,

three stones.

Worn by weather, rock and wave.


Time has forgotten.

The gulls and the clouds remember.


The water washes as a mother with love and duty.

The sky and the rain pay homage.


The sea remembers all.

I am an artist living in Victoria, BC Canada. I am primarily a painter and I dabble in photography. My subject matter is mainly abstract that is informed by landscape and the sea along with my experiences and observations. Aesthetic appreciation is the key. Art can be found all around you, from the inside of a flower to an accidental arrangement of stones and driftwood or shadows cast on a roadway.
