‘George’s Forest Dream’


‘George’s Forest Dream’-2017, 40″x40″

My Dog “George” thinks he owns this forest!

He carefully sniffs and dispenses his “social media communications” on all his carefully selected spots. He carefully analyses everything through his nose. I’m convinced he’s primarily a nose attached to a brain… Like any dog; if you don’t distract him from his nose, you won’t get his attention.
How do dogs dream?
I’ll take a shot at it; here’s George having an “out of body, experience”…

‘Green Timbers with George’


‘Green Timbers with George’-2017, 45″x 75″
Green Timbers Forest is pretty good as urban forests go.
It’s a world of it’s own… deserving of protection.
My dog, George… thinks it’s his turf. He patiently waits while I fiddle with my camera.

‘Green Timbers Tunnel with Dog’


‘Green Timbers Tunnel with Dog’-2017, 40″x 40″
Green Timbers Forest is in Surrey. That’s Surrey, in Metropolitan Vancouver, not London England!
My dog “George” is patiently waiting for me to stop fiddling around and continue the “sniff and wiz”.
He’s unaware that he’s been brought here today specifically to model.
Being a charming Standard Poodle, he’s a very good poser and very patient with the hired help (that would be me).
Nothing phases him, if this tunnel was there… he’d jump right in.

‘Library Glass Warp’

 


Library Glass Warp‘-2011, 20″ x 29.75″

Vancouver’s main library looks like a modern version of the Roman Coliseum. Of course, it’s surrounded by beautiful glass buildings, so I just decided to wrap them around it. The Library is also circular, so I stayed with the circular theme. This was a winter project. As usual;┬áthere was no snow… lucky to be living in “Lotus Land”!

‘Burrard Inlet with Blue Dot’


‘Burrard Inlet with Blue Dot’-2016, 45″x 90″
This is another piece, in my ‘HarbourFront in Alternate Reality’ Series.
The Pacific, blue sky and sun, made this winter day a piece of cake!
Vancouver embraces the 21st Century in a uniquely Canadian way.
It’s a very cool city, especially in the winter…

“West Hastings’


‘West Hastings’-2017, 45″x75″
I actually shot the components for this piece in November, 2016. After a record number of rainy days this winter; I finally got around to working with it.

This park is little Refuge from The Towers. I find the Towers both beautiful and menacing. They’re efficient on one level and wasteful on another.

There’s no denying their beauty though…
