"In Front of Lulu's House"


On the afternoon of Winter's Solstice I went
on a painting adventure with
 fellow, fellow artist, Jeffrey Boron.
From where I painted, just over in Linnyland,
 I had a view of little red roofed houses 
and the Sooke hills beyond.
While I painted Lulu came by and told me
that she lives in one of the Queen's houses,
 then she told me some stories about her home and the area. 
Before she left we had talked  
cedar, sweet grass and some more Linny lore.

Warm Memories - Conover Cove SOLD

This painting was commissioned as a surprise Christmas gift-
   safe to post now.
 Dawne and her husband share warm memories of the many times
 that they and their two daughters boated to this special spot
 on Wallace Island's Conover Cove.
And, lucky me, during some of the darkest days in November
I visited (via Linnyland) warm, summery Conover Cove.
 While I painted, I could see two (little then) girls deciding
 whose turn it was to sit in the small chair!

Long Ago

The Turner's building is one of my favourites
 of Victoria's older character buildings and,
although it appears every now and then in Linnyland, 
this is it's tallest incarnation so far.
Turner's, a la long and leaner painting, is from a recent
demo/mini workshop that I gave with the fun loving
 Oak Bay Art Club.
