Golden Times

This one is from a recent
Linnyland painting demonstration
that I gave for the enthusiastic Oak Bay Art Club.
The painting is of a store in their Oak Bay
neighbourhood called the Demitasse Bakery Store.
After the demo the members of the group told me
that, as well as taking them back to their childhood,
they were certain that they would never be able to drive by this
little store and look at it in the same way.
And, those are good things, yes?

The Edge SOLD

This one "grew" from a smaller
Cowichan Lake plein air adventure painting.
These trees on the edge of the clearing
reminded me of a group of long legged, knobbly knee-ers
gathering strength from their togetherness.

Wait Watchers SOLD

This one is from one of my recent demos;
'Victoria artist Linny D. Vine will

be demonstrating the steps that she takes

in creating a "Linnyland landscape"...

She will show how she combines colour, composition,

light, and imagination to create her paintings.

Linny's distinctive painting style

colours her urban and landscape scenes

with a magical mix of joy and light.

Whether painting in studio or en plein air,

Linny skillfully combines spirit of place

with her uniquely expressive brushwork

to create paintings of happiness.

You can view her work at'


Thank-you to everyone who joined me

on an adventure in Linnyland!

Westsong View

After the ice crystal adventure (see last post)
an unexpected and unusual snow storm arrived in Victoria.
A few days afterwards on a cold but sunny afternoon
fellow, fellow artist Jeffrey J. Boron and I ventured out
on an extreme, (for Victoria), painting adventure.
I was hoping to paint a snow scene
along the Westsong walkway, instead I found
a sunny spot out of the wind.
Even though I didn't have a snowy view I was
toasty as I faced south towards the Olympic Mountains
and the warmth of the sun.

Winter Sky - Holland Point

This one is from a recent
ocean side adventure to Holland Point (Victoria, BC)
with fellow, fellow artist, Jeffrey J. Boron.
We set up our easels under a sunny February sky
and started to paint.
As I blocked in the shoreline shapes I was
aware that the sky had darkened but
the air temperature still felt warm.
While I darkened the sky in the painting
the temperature changed to cool.
Then, as I painted in the rocks and started on the water
the air temperature became cold.
I put in a few more strokes as ice crystals started to fall.
We packed up our gear and...
