"Fulford Farm"

Another Linnyland painting from 
another Saltspring/Salt Spring Linnyland painting adventure.
While I painted a small audience gradually gathered; first a woman visiting SSI on her annual writer's retreat, then one popsicle eating child, then two more, then a father and a sculptor sprawled on the ground next to the easel, and finally a neighbour and her children joined them - and me.
Happy Thanksgiving, Canada! 
May you and your gathering enjoy.

"The Double Umbrella Cabin"

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,

"Cusheon Lake Colors"

Just home from a Saltspring/Salt Spring Island 
Linnyland swimming/painting/swimming/painting/
swimming/swimming/swimming/swimming adventure... 
this one was from the very end of the day with
 a view of the very end of the lake, 
at the (almost) very end of summer. 
It was so dark while I packed my paints 
that the bats were already swooping and 
the little tree frog was headed
out for the night...

"Me, Myself and I" SOLD

Earlier this summer I was commissioned by 
a lovely couple to create a painting in
remembrance of a special daughter.
It was my honour to create this painting
for new Linnyland Collectors, Jim and Alice.
"Me, Myself and I"
oil on canvas
60 x 24

Upon first viewing, with the colours in the 
Collectors' beautiful home reflected in their painting, 
the immediate response was, 
"Linny, it's as though you painted the painting here!", 
followed by the happy exclamation of, 
"It's even better than I thought it would be!" 
And later, "We see something new, something 
more complex every time we look at it. 
We cannot thank you enough."

"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.
"Farm Life"

Commissioned by happy Linnyland Collectors from Central Saanich BC Canada.
a joy to paint!
