Painting In The Great Bear Rainforest

The video above and the following paintings were inspired from an amazing boat trip to the “Great Bear Rainforest “, in British Columbia’s central coast.  Along with   several other colleagues and a wonderful crew aboard the Columbia III , we  were part of  a large gathering of artists working to raise awareness of the rich  fragile  beauty of this place that is threatened with   a new proposed oil  pipeline and supertanker traffic sailing through some of the most bio diverse and rich eco systems on the planet. For more information on the “Artists for an Oil Free Coast “ project   please visit the Raincoast  Conservation Foundation Website.  A wonderful coffee table book  of paintings and writings from the project is now available! Also painting from this trip are now posted on the recent works gallery.
