janel’s arbutus

For those of us who have lived on southern Vancouver Island or one of the Gulf Islands and then moved away, the Arbutus tree becomes an iconic symbol of place. That was the impetus for this commission. It’s large for a landscape, 30” x 40”, and caused me no end of hair pulling and second guessing… but in a good way! I hope it reminds its new owner of a place she knows and loves, though she now lives in a very different but also beautiful environment (Norfolk, UK).
