"Summer Solstice Evening"

The Summer Solstice Linnyland painting adventure 
tradition continues... and last night's adventure was full
of action; Swallow and Turkey Vulture swoops, 
Kingfisher chatter, 
fly-bys from Goldfinch, Blue Heron, Bald Eagle, Quail & Osprey,
 a few sprinkles of rain and eventually big winds. 
Winds so BIG that just before the "paint fast finale" 
there was a "butter side down in the bushes" incident, 
for the painting (not me), then a quick rescue. 
HaPpY Summer!! HaPpY Adventures!!

"Salish Sea Islet"

Once upon a few weeks ago 
the Linnyland painting adventure 
destination for a summery April morning was Port Renfrew.
In Victoria the sky was clear and the temperature
 was unseasonable warm,
 in Sooke there was a bit of "certain to burn off" fog,
 in Jordan River the fog was so thick that the only view was fog. 
And towards Port Renfrew?
So, boomerang plan for this Linnyland painting adventure; 
travel backwards, find a view and paint fast.

"Prairie Luminary"

As you may or may not know, my first three years 
were lived in the Canadian prairies 
and my most distinct memories of this time 
are of Fireflies, Prairie Dogs 
So, it's very exciting when (every now and then) 
someone kindly offers one of their 
grain elevator photos as inspiration for 
long & leaner Linnyland painting.
Inspiration for this painting of the elevator in Rouleau SASK,
made FAMOUS in the Corner Gas comedy series 
as the "Dog River" elevator,
came from Linnyland Collector 
AND photographer extraordinaire, "Fionnuisce", 
of Arcata California USA.
Thank-you, Fionnuisce!

Cupid's sister, "Luna", is that wonderful 
adolescent combination of 
"shoot for the moon" determination 
and "winging it" insouciance, 
her arrows bring the "moonstruck", 
moony sensations of love.
from Luna and Linnyland!

Thank-you all for being a part of LINNYLAND'S WILD & WONDERFUL 2015!!

Wishes of wild & wonderful sunshiny joy from Linny D. Vine to all! 

Thank-you all for being part of 
Here in the studio the sun is shining, 
there's a newly commissioned painting on the easel
and I'm feeling wildly grateful. 2015 brought new successes 
with galleries that represent my work plus new gallery representation, 
and many new Linny/Linnyland/D.Vine Collectors, too
 - AND, it's so sunshiny, wildly, wonderful when one of those 
new Collectors shares their happiness; 
during the holidays Marion sent a kind message saying 
that her beautiful AND thoughtful daughter, Barbara, 
 surprised her with her much coveted "Crop Tour" painting!
So, here's wishing everyone a wonderful New Year's Eve 
and much more sunshiny joy in the new year...
