First Nations Carving in the City of Totems

Duncan on Vancouver Island in British Columbia has more than 80 First Nations carvings on its downtown streets. To see more of my photos and art, view my gallery wall located in YESTERDAY, 333 Barton Street East, Hamilton, or check out my website

About the Optimism of Color Blog

Every Tuesday and Friday, I’m posting a photo or piece of art that I’ve created that reflects what I call the Optimism of Color. Through vibrant colors and bold visceral forms, these works shout out my joy at being alive, and my good fortune at being able to continue to make art after a near death experience.

Each of the images I post brings a smile to my face. I hope they bring you similar joy and laughter through the Optimism of Color.
