Summer on the Big Lake

As the Christmas cards arrive
I'm enjoying a summertime flashback
to an August Linnyland swimming, painting,
 swimming, picnicking,
swimming, boating, 
swimming adventure
 at Cowichan Lake.

Downtown Date

This one started (way back in July) when the
 Art Gallery of Greater Victoria invited me
 to participate in their first ever Paint-In the Square, 
(in honor of the city of Victoria's 150th Anniversary).
The event's on site coordinator and all round fantastic guy,
 Ben Fast, recorded his take on the day here .
The building in this painting is Victoria's City Hall, 
which is beside the "Paint-In the Square's", 
Centennial Square. As I painted the building
 these two figures appearedon the canvas.
(Linnyland paintings evolve to include 
whatever shows up on the canvas while I paint.)
 And, I just learned that beautiful Melanie listened carefully
 as I explained how this sort of thing occurs in 
Linnyland paintings, with her kind words she has
 described it here 
I love her description,"heart-centered", 
which has me thinking of how fortunate
 I am to enjoy heart connections
 with art blog buds like you!
To all of you on my blog roll, 
(and others who check in here)
 thank-you for your blog budness,
 your heart connections
 and your beautiful art, too!
