November Light - Highrock Park

This one is from an earlier in November adventure to

Highrock Park in Esquimalt with fellow fella painter,

Jeffrey has claimed thatthere are easily 100 paintings

to be painted in this park and I'm in agreement

- so, that means 200, doesn't it?!

We painted at the park on one of the few November days

that had any sort late afternoon light...only 21 more days until

Winter Solstice and then the light starts it's return.

Quonley's Corner SOLD

You may remember that in September
I painted the Quonley's store
as part of a Victoria plein air event and
this studio painting is of the same Chinatown landmark.
Quonley's is located on the corner of Fisgard
and Government Streets, in between
the Gate of Harmonious Interest and
the Silk Road Tea Company.
Often, as I paint, the figures in the painting will start
to develop personalities or
they begin to remind me of someone,
other times they will go through a few identities
as I'm developing the painting.
This time the elderly women rounding the corner
is on her way home with fresh produce
after her daily shopping trip.
The figure that has entered the interior of Quonley's
reminds me of another local artist, Robert Amos.
I didn't get to know the fellow over to the left
very well but I think that he's a young
guy who was passing through Chinatown
on his way to the coffee shop next to the skateboard store.

Autumn Path - Uplands Park

This little one is from a recent
autumn jaunt to Oak Bay's Uplands Park.
It was on a dear friend's birthday that we made
a first trip to this park and,
because it was a fairly dark, dank afternoon,
we didn't get any further than this spot on the path.
I set up to paint and thought
how the mystery of what lies around the bend of this path
is similar to my friend on his birthday
wondering what's around the
corner for his new year...
may it be overflowing with of all of your heart's desires!

Life on the Edge

is of a property
near Saxe Point Park
and just down the street from
my home/studio. The house in the painting
sits just above the giant firs, which grow right above
the curved boulders that slope straight up from the edge of the ocean.
