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...)

  1. Linny, I love your leaning always toward abstract pattern. It really pulls me in to the picture.

  2. Hi Sheila, thanks for coming by and leaving your wonderful comment. When I saw these trees at the edge of a relatively new logging cut they reminded me of a group of knobbly kneed long leggeds all gathered together to brave the attention that their sudden exposure had brought them.

  3. I love your paintings.They communicate the joy of nature in a special way. I really like your style. I'm adding on as a follower

  4. Hi Anita,

    Thank-you for coming to visit. I'm fond of your description, "the joy of nature" and I thank-you for your comments! Now I'm off to visit your blog...
