The 'My View' series germinated from a move to Kitsilano in 2016. My current work space loolks north over a very distict wood balcony on to a busy neighbourhood full of noise and commotion. In the background loom the north shore mountains. In the foreground, an intense city scape including news helicopters, lines of traffic, seagulls and crows! All this activity inspired me to render several paintings with these images in mind.
