Paint Every Mountain: I will finish and publish a book about hiking and painting in mountains all over the world. The above painting of Lake Louise (Photoshopped ‘aprés Hundertwasser) will be included in one of the chapters on specific crayon colours.

Creative Archaeology:  I have continued to build the series ‘Time Travel with a Bag of Crayons’ equipped with the same plein air painting kit I used for ‘Paint Every Mountain.’  The creative archaeology series, now in chronological order, will include some of the photos and sketches I accumulated in past archaeology-related travel with the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria and the travel study program at the University of Victoria.

Predictive Analytics This has evolved into a series of essays and illustrations of the increasingly drastic climate effects of the Anthropocene.
