Terry Isaac
1958 - 2019
 Terry in his Gallery, Naramata Benches            Me and Terry at a workshop in 2018, Canal Flats

Most people who know me and watch my blog will know that I have been incredibly influenced by the talent, genius and heart of Terry Isaac. I was so very sad to learn of his passing on July 16th. Terry was a gifted artist and teacher who was very generous with his knowledge and his time. I am honoured to have known him, to have learnt from him and to have called him my friend.

Terry has been chosen as the 2019 Ducks Unlimited Artist of the year.

Columbia Connections
16" x 20" Acrylic on Canvas

In the autumn of 2018 I was commissioned by the RDEK to create a piece of art that would be presented to Ute Juras for her years of service as a member of their board. I was delighted that she had requested one of my paintings. Mount Sabine (locally known as 'Old Baldy') is in the background with the wetlands of the Columbia and the canal in the foreground. In days past, the canal was intended to connect bodies of water in order for boats to pass. In her role as a member of the RDEK and longtime member of council in Canal Flats, Ute Juras made connections with many people and organizations and so I thought this title of Columbia Connections to be very fitting.

Sunday, 13 January 2019


For the past several months my blog has been silent and outdated, 
partly because of forgetfulness, partly because of my son's busy hockey 
schedule, and partly because I just haven't had anything new to show.
Reason being, I have been filling private commissions. Seven of them to
 be exact. This large commission below was one of the first of said 
commissions. The quote from Emerson that appears over this sunrise is
something of great importance to the owner of this original. I have never 
before painted so many words. It was a cool project that taught me much.
It has also inspired me to do more of this kind of art when I have time to 
pursue my own ideas again.

Best wishes and happy creating in 2019!

Painting The Drama of Wildlife
 Terry Isaac signs my copy of his book titled, "Painting The Drama of Wildlife".

Terry Isaac instructed a two day workshop at the Headwaters Art Room
in Discovery Center, Canal Flats, B.C. Seven lucky artists participated in
the workshop on April 7th and 8th, 2018, and much fun was had by all.
Terry offered gentle critiques and lessons on composition.
We were very privileged to learn from such a gifted artist and teacher.

Thank you Terry!
