This pencil sketch is of an abandoned house next to the Village Office in Port Elgin, New Brunswick. There are so many beautiful houses like this around, but they won’t be for long.

County fair equipment in winter storage on the Tantramar marsh

This painting was made from a collage of black-and-white photos (and a couple for colour reference) I’d taken in the winter of 1992–93 on the Nova Scotia side of the border, between Fort Lawrence and Ahmerst. About 16 × 6 ½″ on 300 gsm Arches Cold Press watercolour paper.

MV John Hamilton Gray departs Cape Tormentine

This March, 1990, sketch was done on location with a blue, felt-tip pen of some sort, on paper that’s clearly full of acid given how much it’s yellowed (probably generic typing or note paper). Probably a Pilot Fineliner. Measures about 6 ½ × 2 ½″.
