Moss Street Paint-In 2011

It was a Moss Street Miracle!
No, unfortunately the Parasol Model didn't make an appearance,
but there were about 30,000 other parasol models that did
because the 24th annual Art Gallery of Greater Victoria event
started out with rain pouring from the July sky.
(Setting up was funny/scary -
all squishy and cramped under a water proof tent.)
But then the miracle; the rain stopped,
the crowds of art lovers appeared, the sky continued to clear,
the paintings came out from under the tent (so did the painter)
and the sun came out as well!!
Thank-you to all of the visitors to Linnyland; friends, patrons, volunteers, organizers, fellow artists, Looky Lous, Looky Louises,
and everyone who did the sun dance with me, too. You're all
part of the miracle and success of
the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria's Moss Street Paint-In 2011
and I loved connecting with all of you!!
(Once the Paint-In had ended it poured rain again. Happily, I was homeward bound within Vinnie Van Go...)

~ And remember, it's always sunny and warm in Linnyland!!


  1. Lookin Good Linny!... and none the worst for the wear n'tear that these events bring on a body!

    It would appear that the "Sun" Gods continue to shine on Linnyland! Must have been your dancing! HA HA! Long may they do so!
