Littoral Light


In these new paintings, I am revisiting some of my favourite places in Newfoundland. The weather that we love to hate keeps the light along the coast changing from moment to moment, transforming one’s perception of colours and spatial relationships. It’s the light, and how it plays on water and rocks, bounces through the fog, softens then sharpens edges, that keeps me going back to look, and paint, again.
