Shoreline offers much potential

The Comox Valley shoreline offers an ever-changing vista of lapping waves, shifting sands and driftwood.

Huge chunks of long-forgotten trees litter the beaches, washed ashore by winter storms. Twisted gnarly chunks of smashed roots and branches, once part of mighty stands, are what Hans

Petersen seeks.

Driftwood is the lure of this man’s passion.

Lurking in the weathered patterns of wood, Hans sees duelling titans, serpents, a lazy dog, and ancient dragons. Back Alley Studio is where the real work begins, as Hans begins to sand, grind, buff and stain to liberate the sculpture he has envisioned.

His work will be on exhibit at Ginger 9 Studio’s final Art Gala of the year opening Dec. 1 from 7 to 10 p.m. at 130-211 Centennial Dr., just off Ryan and Back roads.

For details, phone 250–338-6463.

Petersen can be reached at bevhans@telus.net.
