Another from a recent
Linnyland painting/swimming adventure
on Saltspring/Salt Spring Island.
From the middle of the lake,
where an Osprey circled and visited during my swim,
I could see a little blue cabin that I thought I'd like to paint.
But later, when I set up to paint, I discovered that
there was a tree that blocked the view
of the fine little blue cabin. So, this is
somewhat of "a recollection of that cabin,
combined with moving a different cabin
down the mountain side and closer to the lake,
plus the addition of a couple of yellow striped
straight out of Linnyland umbrellas type of painting".
*And, just for a "fun" challenge
I thought, "I'll forgo using any red paint";
whenever I try this,
(and all the while that I paint),
my inner voice screams out,
"NO RED - WHY, LINNY, WHY?!!"
