The Blue Cave Paintings are an extension of the Earth series, that in the last few years have been nspired by my experiences walking the Bruce Trail on the Niagara Escarpment, Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.Near Wiarton on Georgian Bay, there are a series of intriguing caves that typify the geology of the Bruce. My sense of fear of caves is rooted in my childhood influences of books of fairy tales and fables. Walking past or into a cave is a test of bravery on my part. Animals have a lair, sometimes in the earth so perhaps these caves harbour animals. I am still working on these paintings so some may change yet.
