PLUS, there was opportunity to visit with more of AGGV's amazing staff, AND two of my favourite Historical Canadian Artists; Emily Carr and Pegi Nicol Macleod. As I said, "A SUPER MORNING" in Linnyland!!
Art Gallery of Greater Victoria Gallery Shop with Linny D. Vine's "Spring Rhythm"
Emily Carr's "Blue Sky"
Because I was asked if the orbs are part of the painting:
the orbs in the photo are not part of Emily's painting.
But, are we thinking spirit orbs?
Are we perhaps thinking a literal visit with Emily? An Emily visitation?!
Not just "A SUPER MORNING"
but "A SUPERNATURAL MORNING" with Emily Carr in Linnyland!!!!"
... Here's what google says..."What does a blue orb mean?
"Blue is spiritually associated with psychic energy and truth.
It is a very calming color, and many people associate it with spiritual guidance.
Some people feel blue orbs are a sign of a calming presence or energy,
while others feel they indicate the presence of a spirit guide in that location."
Pegi Nicol MacLeod's "Eric Brown at Home"
AGGV Associates' Linnyland-ish Gift Wrap - and that's a wrap!!

I'm a visual artist living in Victoria BC Canada. I paint in either acrylic or oil in what is described as "a visit to a dream" style and/or Linnyism. To me, the visual world is a beautiful combination of colors, shapes and light swirling together in rhythmic patterns that feel like a mixture of Robert Gordon's "I Want to be Free" and Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World". When I paint I bring my interpretation of this beauty to the canvas. Welcome to Linnyland and thank-you for looking at my interpretations.
