Floating Flowerpot NFS

This little boat was home
for my first seven years in Victoria.
The boat's real name was the'Casa Miga',
(friendly house or home of friends),
but the captains of the Harbour Ferry Tour boats
dubbed it 'The Floating Flowerpot'.
It was a wonderful lifestyle,
full of all sorts of challenges, that all made sense
- during the summer months!

Hill Top Tango

My other outdoor painting adventure this week
was to High Rock Park in Esquimalt where
these two oaks were doing their dips and glides
on the velvety green dance floor.

Train and Buildings SOLD

I enjoyed two outdoor painting adventures this week.
The first, on Tuesday, was to the Vic West E & N rail yard with fellow painter fellows, Jeffrey J. Boron, Adam Noonan and Bob McPartlin. The heritage buildings of the rail yard are next to the the tall buildings of the Songhees development and across the street from the Vic West Park skate park.
It was a beautiful sunny morning, although a bit windy near the finish, and while I was packing up to leave I had an easel mishap which resulted in a small, but gritty, "train wreck" that required a bit of repair back in the studio.

Freddie's Flowers

Freddie's Flowers, almost on the corner, corner store is
located at the junction of Oak Bay and Victoria on Fort Street.
During the summer Victoria's boulevards bloom with
colorful plantings and this one was in just the right location
to be claimed by the store's signage.
(While I was painting this one the bike rider morphed into a
free-wheeling young fellow named Freddie.)

Chinatown Cherry Tree

In the spring this cherry tree blooms at the entrance to the
Chinese Public School in Victoria's Chinatown.
As well as the abundance of blossoms,
it was the red on the building and the
big globes on the gate pillars that attracted me to
this scene.
