Gallery Treasure

I mentioned in my earlier post on this year's
Art Gallery of Greater Victoria Moss Street Paint-In
that I would post the painting
that I worked on during the event and this is it.
Each year at the Paint -In I have worked on a painting
of a building that is located somewhere along Moss Street
so, this year I decided to get a few reference shots
of the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria from the angle of it's
beautiful Asian themed garden.
While I was in the garden getting the photos
I saw the door to the gallery open and I was delighted
to see, Mary-ellen, the co-ordinator of the Paint-In,
come through the door for a coffee break in the beautiful garden!
And, as I mentioned (approximately 30,000 times) during the
Paint-In, the gallery's special garden is a gentle place
to calm one's senses after the stimulation
of taking in all that there is to experience
during a visit to the gallery and/or
to the Moss Street Paint-In.

Last Saturday was
the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria
23rd Annual Moss Street Paint -In. This year 140 artists
were invited by the gallery "to bring their studios to the street".
Each year there are approximately 30,000 in attendance
at this ever popular "crazy fun" art event.
Thank-you to all of my old and new friends
and collectors who stopped by to visit.
And welcome to the world wee, precious Juno
who, at 5 days old, attended her first AGGV Paint-In
and congratulations Janice and Darren!
(I'll post the painting that I was working on there soon...)

Roadside Attraction

This one is from an evening painting adventure to
the hay fields where this field in front
of the Garry oaks had yet to be mowed.
(It's a drive in the country
on the way to an old style bowling alley
kind of painting.)

Red Barn Ruckle Park

Happy Canada Day!
As I was getting set to do this post
I realized that, although I use red paint in just about
every one of my paintings, none of my recent
"hot of the easels" (that are photographed)
are red enough for Canada Day. So,this is one from
a few whiles ago, it's of a barn that's
at Ruckle Park on Salt Spring Island.
(It was a red hot day on Salt Spring Island
when I painted this one!)
