Across Canada in Fibre is based on a trip in 2012.  We drove from Vancouver to Halifax to deliver an art show to a venue there.  Then we spent 12 weeks visiting the Maritimes and many of the Canadian National Parks/points of interest on the way back home.  The trip encompassed 26,000 km and 12,500 digital pictures.  Enjoy your trip across Canada with me.

Percé Rock, on the Gaspé Peninsula, is a massive block of limestone sitting in the Gulf of Saint at the town of Percé.  The rock is often clouded shrouded with clouds first thing in the morning.  It looks somewhat like a ship sailing into the distance.  It was named by Samuel de Champlain in 1607.  It has a 15 meter (49 ft. high) hole pierced in it.  More than 130 fossil types have been discovered in the rock..

Ferry at Sunset, BC - 16" x 12" - $145.00 - 2604

Silent Sentinel - 18" x 36" - Not for Sale - 2601


​Born in Vancouver, First Nations art has been around all my life.  I attended an elementary school called "Techumseh" named after an Shawnee chief; watched "How the Loon Got its Necklace" nearly every rainy school lunch; and was a 'First Nations' person in the 1958 school pageant celebrating BC's 100th birthday.  At York University I illustrated a project with an "Emily Carr-like" scene of decaying totem poles in the woods.  I feel First Nations art is part of my Canadian heritage even though I am not.  (Haida art is the most recognized of all the BC indigenous art forms.)  I designed my totem pole with the owl (stealthy, silent hunter), the frog (playful symbol of wealth), the bear (protector of the animal kingdom) and the salmon (sacred food source for humans, animals and the forests themselves).

​The oceans are in never-ending motion, rolling in and out with each wave. Although completely unpredictable, there are occasionally rogue waves which are much taller and wash ashore much further. I enjoyed sitting at the water’s edge watching the incoming waves.​

Aurora Borealis at Marsh Lake, YT - 36" x 18" - $500.00 - 2489

2012 was year of extreme season of “solar wind” (a stream of electrons, proton and helium nuclei). The solar wind usually strikes the outer atmosphere of the earth around the magnetic poles. The collision between solar wind and air causes the air molecules to radiate a glow. The green/yellow light occurs from oxygen atoms hit by solar wind. The red/blue/violet colours happen when nitrogen molecules meet the solar winds.

Louise Falls, NWT - 30" x 20" - $500.00 2491

​Three kilometers downstream from Alexandra Falls on the River Hay is Louise Falls.  You can see by the banks how much erosion there has been creating this gorge over the millennium.  This is what is left from Alexander Falls’ passing over the landscape.

  Louise Falls is a three-tiered waterfall.   ​

Deh Cho Bridge, Fort Providence, NWT

 16" x 12" $200.00 - 2739

There is a relatively new bridge (greater than 1 km long) crossing the Mackenzie River (a river than freezes during the winter).  In the past this crossing was made by ferry in the summer and ice bridge in the winter.  The highway system was closed for weeks while the river froze to a suitable depth for driving on and during the spring breakup.​

14" x 11" - Matted - $50.00 - 2861

Alexandra Falls, NWT - 36" x 24" - $600.00 - 2490

​Millions of years ago plants and animals died and fell to be bottom of an inland sea, forming layers of limestone rock (some hard, some soft). In more modern times, the River Hay has carved away a 130ft deep gorge, four miles long. Alexandra Falls is a cap-rock falls, 103 feet high. The river flowing over the hard rock erodes the softer rock underneath. As more limestone is eroded, the cap breaks off and tumbles into the canyon. Alexandra Falls is eroding southward at a rate of 4 inches a year.  ​
