WEST COAST STORY BEHIND THE ART
Salvaged Live Edge Red Cedar Frame 16x40"
This is a scene that’s been burnt into my mind countless times in the lineup at Sombrio Beach. It’s a place of transformation where towering Sitkas and Red Cedars meet thundering seas, and where lichen covered trunks shimmer like ghostly totems guarding the shores. As our breaths synchronize with the crashing waves and we pause between sets, eagles ride the coastal updrafts and cry out above with words of freedom. It’s a zone shaped by extremes, movement and abundance, carved out from the elements, laid out in layers, where mountain mists weave amongst the canopies and waterfalls dance on driftwood. In this piece I wanted to capture all these beautiful lines and layers of the Juan De Fuca coast, that blend together in blurred unison as the mists and rains blanket our edge of the Earth. Memories of rinsing off in the cascading creeks in the light of a new day cling to us in mystical layers as we return to the warmth of the fire and share stories of the magic and mystery that surround us.
