Mighty Memory

Recently I have been on a bit
of a grain elevator jag
that was initially inspired by my early,
(and nearly only), memories of the prairies. I painted this one
and afterwards I was
doing a little grain elevator research,
and discovered that this one, the Fleming, Saskatchewan elevator,
(built in 1895), was Canada's
oldest standing elevator on it's original site. That same evening
artist Barbara Muir left me a comment,
saying that she had heard sad news
of a fire that destroyed one of the old wooden elevators.
Tragically, it was the Fleming elevator.
The residents of Fleming had been working
to restore their historic elevator
and were nearly finished the restoration.
My heart goes out to the people of Fleming
on their devastating loss.

Bikes and Blossoms SOLD

Bicycle rides and cherry blossoms
say that spring
is here!
(Even though, earlier this week, there were snow flakes falling
while the pink petals from the plum tree blossoms
were floating to the ground.)

Springtime in the Harbour SOLD

It was fun to paint this one at the same time as
the city's landscape turns to pink.
Springtime in Victoria is pink blossomtime!
