View from Ravenhill Farm SOLD

I enjoyed a painting adventure to the
Ravenhill Farm on the Saanich Peninsula
with the Al Fresco non-group last Friday
and this little sketch
is the result.
I set up at the edge of the farm,
facing southwest toward Brentwood Bay and Todd Inlet.
Before I started to paint I raised my arms above my head,
waved them about and declared,
"Put your hands in the air, like you don't care!"
(It's a fun and freeing way in which to start a painting -
and a great motto for living life!)

Autumn by the Blue Bridge

"Autumn by the Blue Bridge" is one of the larger paintings
that I mentioned in one of my past posts.
I'm getting ahead of myself in the seasons with this one,
(and I don't want to rush this year's glorious summer)
but, with all the talk of the fate of Victoria's historic
Johnson Street Bridge / "The Blue Bridge", I started thinking
that it may be the autumn of our (1924) bascule Blue Bridge - or is
that final decision still "up in the air"?

Midsummer Blooms

Thank-you to everyone for
visiting with me at the Moss Street Paint -In,
it was great to see you all!!!
"Midsummer Blooms" is from a warm and vibrant
planting of
lilies that I spotted on the
first day of summer -
(and isn't this the best summer...
and aren't summers the best?!)
