'The Canadian Gallery' was recently launched in Winnipeg, Manitoba to showcase my premiere collection of fine art photographs. A companion, online gallery was also launched which features the complete collection. Corporate art buyers, art collectors and anyone interested in premium fine art photographs can browse the collection based on themes. Each image is offered in one of three editions: an open edition, a limited edition and a signature edition.

"Like a Mother, the Earth bore us and sustains us, asking little in return but love and respect". I've always loved that phrase by Robert Peters, good friend and excellent graphic designer. Following are anecdotes , meditations , natural reflections and images about the natural world.

I met Avery in the early 80's in Edmonton where we both worked in forestry. As fate would have it, we would both move to Winnipeg in the mid 80's where I worked in the same office as her husband Paul. In the mid 1990s, Paul and Avery moved to their lakeside home on Clearwater Lake, a most beautiful setting and one which I have had the pleasure of visiting and working around on numerous occasions. Avery was also very helpful in setting out a direction for this Blog - what an awful name by the way. That's why I call this "In Focus"!
I am proud to present a small portfolio of four art works by Avery.

I arrived at the Great Saskatchewan Sand Hills in mid afternoon. I walked about a couple of the dunes making images here and there. I returned to the van after a couple of hours to rest waiting for the evening light. Shortly after, clouds rolled in and it looked like it would not clear that evening. Still, I walked about an hour before sunset, waiting, hoping. Just before the sun would sink below the horizon, the clouds broke just enough to allow strong dramatic light to bathe the landscape
