"Betty Bunny"

Did Linnyland go down the bunny hole - or, did "Betty Bunny"

Either way, "Betty Bunny" is here to wish us all
 "Happy Bunny Day!"

"Farm Life" SOLD

Another commission from 2013 and, once again, for 
"already Linnyland Collectors". 
It was many whiles ago when Steve and Juliann first talked
 to me about creating a Linnyland painting that would include
their nursery's historic water tower, so I was delighted
 when Steve called last year to commission
 the painting for Juliann's (special) birthday.
Since the 90's the Kimoff Farm tower 
has been proudly "towering"at Juliann and Steve's
 Central Saanich wholesale nursery.
Originally it "towered" in Victoria's Inner Harbour for a 
roofing company (on the site where the Ocean Point Resort
 is now located), then it "towered" for a View Royal sawmill and now 
and forever it's "towering" in Linnyland surrounded by the
 creatures that enjoy the good life at the Kimoff (Farm) Nursery.

Commissioned by happy Linnyland Collectors from Central Saanich BC Canada.

"Little Empire" SOLD

A summer of 2013 commission... and couldn't
 we all use a little summer flashback (OR flash forward)
 about [right] now!
This painting was commissioned by Ron, 
 "an already a Linnyland Collector".
It's a Linnyland version of Ron's little gem
 of a home, with it's many treasures,
including Winston (a great little grey pupper), who 
is fondly remembered throughout Fernwood.
"Little Empire" with all of it's warm, summery 
memories was a delight to paint!

HAPPY Two - OH - One - Four, "The year of GOOD things GALORE"!

Happy Two - OH - One Four, "The year of GOOD things GALORE"!
 Adam Sawatsky, Victoria's much loved & respected media personality
(Monday Magazine, CTV News and CFAX Broadcasting),
asked me to offer one piece of advise for 
those who would like to resolve to be more creative in 2014. 
So I responded,
“Put your hands in the air, like you don’t care!” 
With your hands in the air, wiggle them and the rest of yourself 
all about, like a carefree child. This movement
 awakens playful, experimental energy and,
 with hands in the air, the posture says; dive in,
 create, explore, see what happens next,
 allow your creation to develop the way that it wants,
 go wherever it takes you. 
Whether painting in my studio
 or out of doors (en plein air) this “technique”
 gives me the freedom to enjoy wherever
 the creative process takes me. 
And, it takes me to Linnyland, and many other wonderful places!"

Happy wiggles from Linnyland!!

"Christmas Day Miracle Walk & Dark Chocolate"

December 11, 2013 issue, Black Press, Victoria BC. Canada
Earlier in December, when Jennifer Blyth of Black Press
 asked me about my family's favourite holiday tradition,
 I said that two traditions came to mind; 
 "First, our "Christmas Day Miracle Walk”. 
While the festive meal cooks we enjoy a walk
 where we look for Christmas miracles and often discover
 them in nature, like the year that we wandered
 along the waterfront at Saxe Point Park just as
 a pod of resident orcas swam by.

And, the second tradition is dark chocolate!

Hope your holidays are miraculous (and chocolatey), too!

Wishing you...

Wishing you peace, love light & joy
for the holidays and throughout the new year.

"Early Morning Light"

Happy, Happy Winter Solstice! 
Welcome the return of Light!
As the light returns we may release

And with the light we welcome what we wish
to experience and enjoy in our life.

"City Centre" SOLD

This is another painting commissioned
 by the Downtown Victoria Business Association. 
I wandered round and round the perimeter of Victoria's Bay Centre 
and chose this view of the large centre, 
(from Douglas Street and View Street). 
As you can see, in Linnyland, the tree foliage
 was ahead of season
 and turned this scene to 
the golden city center.
