Autumn Oaks - Highrock Park SOLD


I've been busy with preparations
for my November solo show,
LINNY at LARGE,
but on Saturday morning it was so sunny
and warm that I snuck out for a
plein air adventure to one of
the parks in my neighbourhood.
The sky clouded over while I was painting
but the temperature stayed warm
and as the clouds moved in I became more and more fond
of the combination of green moss, golden Garry oak leaves,
and all of the different blues and greys
of the rocks, mountains and sky.
Some of the large rock formations at Highrock Park
look as though they are sculptures that have been
carefully placed and arranged
to accentuate the views of
the Strait of Juan de Fuca and
the Olympic Mountains,
(and maybe they have!)

  2. This is beautiful Linny. I love the moody feel in the way you have painted the sky. Those golden colours of fall are luscious are they not? Great that you got a chance to sneak away for a paint out.

  3. This is really a wonderful painting of the view from Highrock Park, Linny. I'm looking forward to seeing your stuff at the Mercurio -- and you've inspired me to go up to Highrock Park as well!
