Prairie Evening

This is another in the Linnyland long and leaner
grain elevator series.
(As I've mentioned in earlier elevator posts,
these old giants are one my few memories of the prairies.)
This one is of the elevator in Mayerthorpe, Alberta.
Vancouver artist and blogger, Maxine Wolodko,
very kindly sent me photos of her hometown elevator.
Thank-you Maxine and Mayerthorpe!

Blossoms and Browsers

Sun Neen Fai Lok and Happy Year of the Rabbit!
This painting of Victoria's Chinatown
is from a few whiles ago.
When I go to Chinatown early in the day these
two petite elders are usually together
doing their morning shop.
Year of the Rabbit is said to bring luck, peace and tranquility.

Warm Sunset - Fisgard Light SOLD

And, for Groundhog Day (and with the movie in mind),
here's another lighthouse painting.
I heard that the groundhog didn't see it's shadow today
and that means that spring is happening - soon!

Fisgard Light Sunset SOLD

During January I painted lighthouses.
Was I wanting more light? Was I needing to lighten up?
(How do I mean that?) The answers are yes, yes and yes!
So, more light...YES!
