Ferry Home 2019

Mixed media on canvas with resin. 40” x 16”

As a young man, I remember the ferry rides with all the other tourists onboard MV Quinsam to and from Gabriola Island. You had to ride outside on the deck and watch the shoreline come and go! In 2006 this trip became my daily commute to and from work when I moved to Gabe. Unlike many before me who would hate the wait, I, like many more, learned to love the time that it gave me each day to give thanks for everything this life has offered me. Ferry Home, along with Sunset Crossing, is the first of two ferry inspired pieces that remind me of the things that make island living so unique and so very special!
