Good Vibrations

Acrylic, 2019

Good Vibrations on Salt Spring Island - I was on a road trip and the gulf islands of the western most coast of Canada were the destination. I fell in love with this little island known for it's vibrant arts community. My hotel room included a view of Ganges Inner Harbour and when morning dawn kissed the ocean, and the sun began to rise between the islands, I grabbed my camera and captured the moment. The sky flooded with hues of blood orange, dioxazine purple and Indian yellow. The silhouettes of the boats, container ships and passing BC Ferry provided stillness among the movement of the dawn and the awakening of the harbour. The clouds becoming cookie cutter constructions in the sky above with shapes of morning eggs and birds in flight. This is 'Good Vibrations'
