Repose, Wickaninnish Beach

11" x 14" oil on canvas - SOLD

If you’ve ever lived on or visited the west coast of Vancouver Island, you may recognize this view of the curve of Long Beach, looking north into Wickaninnish Bay. I chose to capture it on a restful day, without its more common crash and fury, or surfable waves. Through decades there, I’ve seen the coast in every mood—from furious to almost, but more rarely, placid. I love all its personalities but chose to paint this view in ‘repose’, a day to celebrate a more tranquil beach escape.
