View From Black Rock: The Survivor

Released 2017

This artwork is available as a limited edition giclée reproduction.

The title refers to the lone Sitka Spruce tree that has somehow grown to maturity against all odds. I did a preliminary watercolour of this same tree for a close friend who was dying from colon cancer. The title: “Survivor”, gave him considerable hope. The scene is the view from the Black Rock Resort in Ucluelet, B.C. located on the exposed western shores of Vancouver Island. I was excited by the big seas after a storm in March. The layers of sea spray hanging between the rocky outcrops looked like an interesting challenge in painting aerial perspective. I was originally going to paint in layers of grey as it was the day I got the initial inspiration but the warmer tones with low afternoon light seemed much more interesting and gave the scene a more uplifting feeling. I was thrilled that this artwork won the 2018 World Grand Prize in International Artist Magazine’s competition on Lakes, Rivers and Seascapes.
