I’ve lived my life on the cost of B.C. and had the good fortune to witness much beauty. My family crest is Eagle and they have given me much inspiration over the years.

During the late summer of 2019 I was enjoying an evening in Tofino with, Andrea, my wife. We were having a meal at Long Beach Lodge over looking the beach and a beautiful Tofino sunset. I took a number of photos and found one weeks later that inspired a memory.

I recall many magic moments with eagles through the years. Eagles during courtship will fly high and then lock talons and tumble to the earth or ocean below. I recall one incident that stands out. It was a beautiful day in Kitkatla, my home village and two eagles locked talons and twirl around and around as they tumbled to the ocean below. They hung on so close to the water that when they let go they just skimmed the water as they rose to the heavens again. They flew off somewhere among the cedar trees  and I was left with the beautiful vision.

Some 50 years later the memory comes to live in this fine art print entitled, Courtship.
