Printed locally with love in the beautiful Comox Valley.
The West Coast Story
Fishing for truth in a gambling sea, caught a dream fish on my line and it set me free. Sprinkled it with stars, and the tears from my eyes, seasoned it with love of the deepest kind. Laid it to rest in the campfire smoke, next to restless seas where big waves broke. With a meat made of medicine it showed me the way, through the firelight, next to Sitkas that swayed. I left the earth that day.
Inspired by a campfire jam at Middle Beach, Tofino, with my amigo German Ocampo Salazar. It was the middle of summer and we spent the evening roasting veggies on the fire and catching up with old friends as our notes mingled with the smoke and rose over burning skies.
I created this piece for the Pacific Board Art Show at the Land and Sea Brewery in Comox B.C. in the Summer of 2019. Started by local artists, it’s a project that turns used boards into beautiful art pieces, with 30% of sales going to local environmental charities.
