Sunny Day- Botanical Beach Bay

This one is a plein air from yesterday's
adventure to Botanical Beach Park.
It was a gorgeous day of
warm sunshine and fresh ocean air!
On the drive home, just when I thought
the day couldn't possibly get any more glorious
and even before I'd seen the brilliant orange sunset,
I had the good fortune
to see a Northern Pygmy - Owl.
(Seeing a Pygmy - Owl and seeing a movie in 3 - D
are two things that I have experienced
this month that have long been on my
large list of things that I have my heart set on
experiencing in this life time
- I'm having a good month and a good life!)

Chinatown Pine SOLD

Sun Neen Fai Lok! /Happy New Year!
The year of the tiger starts today and Victoria's Chinatown
is decorated in preparation for the
new lunar year celebrations.
All along the streets there are large red lanterns
strung high above the cherry and pine trees.
The color red represents happiness and good luck
and the pine tree represents longevity and endurance.
Having a pine tree on your property
is said to bring good fortune,
(and, according to Linny lore, a painting of one will as well!)

Gold Sky and Firs

This is another from an
outdoor adventure to Highrock Park.
It was on a grey day in early January.
After I returned to the studio the painting's
sky looked too blah, so, the clouds parted
and the gold sky appeared.
