Island Dweller Series

Recently I have an inner struggling going on while watching the development  happening on Vancouver Island.  While I understand the need for space to live in this amazing place, I feel we are slowly losing what makes it so amazing and attractive to newcomers in the first place.  I am also part of this human race, I consume wood and paper products, live in a wooden house, benefit from "progress",  have a cleared area where I live etc etc... so I understand the footprint we all make. Out of this confusing and upsetting place I struggle with I have found some joy within these whimsical little paintings.  As I create each scene they fill me with a sense of childlike wonder and discovery.  They comfort me and I absolutely LOVE to paint them, more than anything else I have ever worked on.  I have always been an imaginative story teller by nature, and I miss that part of my creative self when I paint...until now.  The idea of the Island Dwellers fill my well of imagination and I am able to slip in messages unnoticed (or noticed?), with a splash of humour if needed.  I can tap into the past, present and future.  Its just a little escape...we all need it once in awhile.
