Burgoyne Bay Barn

This one is from a recent adventure
to Salt Spring Island.
The old barn in this painting is in a field in
Burgoyne Bay Park which is at the base
of Mount Maxwell.
It was a grey sky afternoon as I painted yet, flying above me, there
were three varieties of swallows (Barn, Tree and Violet Green) and I had my
first dragonfly sighting of the year.
Plus, with the miracle of paint (in Linnyland), the sun
was shining on my canvas.

  1. Hi LInny, Isn't that true...the miracle of paint is that it can be sunny when it's not. i think that says something about your disposition. Lovely painting with the mountain soaring behind the barn.

  2. Thank-you, Sally, for your dear comments!

  3. Everything about this environment says, welcome, rest here, be refreshed.

    It's a gorgeous place this Linnyland!
