The Edge - Cowichan Lake SOLD

This is another one from my recent camping trip
to Cowichan Lake.
After a boat trip and a swim I
set up to paint under a giant cedar tree. The sky
went from sunny to cloudy and back to sunny while
I painted
and, next to me, a native Douglas squirrel was busy running
(almost flying)
back and forth along a mossy log
treasured cones.
(And, when I was finished, I jumped in the lake for another swim...)

Summer Afternoon - Lake Cowichan SOLD

Last week I was away to Cowichan Lake
for a camping trip
and after a gorgeous day of lake swimming
I set up my easel to paint.
This view is from the Gordon Bay Provincial Park
looking across the lake towards
Honeymoon Bay.
When this little one was done I dove in for
one more swim!

The Road Home - Woodwynn Farm

This one is from last Friday's outing with the
Al Fresco non-group. We had the joy of painting
at a very special place, the historic Woodwynn Farm, in
Saanich. (Check out the link to learn more about
the exciting plan for this farm!)

Cattle Point View SOLD

This small painting
is from a grey day adventure
at Cattle Point Park in Oak Bay.
I set up along the entance roadway facing
towards Discovery Island.
The first brush stroke that I applied had
a slight slant so, I decided to continue the slant
throughout the painting.

Blossomtime by the Blue Bridge

This is another of the larger pieces that I mentioned
in an earlier post.
It's a spring scene of Victoria's inner harbour
with cherry tree blossoms
in full bloom.
(My mind does some wandering and wondering
while I'm painting, for instance;
Victoria still has quite a few VW vans
on it's roads... how many
of the VW vans have crossed the Johnson Street/Blue Bridge from the '60's
until now... it's amazing that there
seem to be more VW vans than VW bugs/beetles still
travelling on Victoria's roads ... is it this way where you are, too?)
