High Above the Salish Sea

The next Linnyland summer painting adventure
was one that had been calling to me for a number of years
and that's because, from my Victoria studio, I look across the
strait to the town of Port Angeles and the Olympic Mountains but,
until this summer, hadn't visited the area.
 So, away we went, (fellow, fellow artist Jeffrey Boron and I),
 on a hot, hot August day; through customs (another story for another day), across the Salish Sea, through Port Angeles
 to the top - Hurricane Ridge.
The fields were abloom with wild flowers, the air scented
 with mountain sage and the last patches of snow nearly melted.
There was exploring, then picnicking
and finally painting right at the very top of it all.
And now, (after returning through customs - yet another story for another day),  I've visited (and painted) the view
 from my studio window!

Summer Evening on Kaatza

This one is from that same magical Linnyland painting
 (& swimming) adventure to Lake Cowichan
 or Kaatza (The Big Lake).
After a swim I wandered around the point
 and painted facing the Northwest end of the lake. 
And, when I had finished, 
there was time for one more swim...

Songhees Summer Saunter

In between commissions and summer adventuring
I just realized that this one didn't get posted.
It's from "a few whiles ago" summer morning Linnyland painting
adventure along Victoria's Songhees walkway,
(in between a condo building & the Spinaker's Restaurant),
and looking across to Fisherman's Wharf.

Fernwood Freddie SOLD

This painting may look familiar.
The first painting of this scene,'Spring in the Square', was
sold immediately and has recently sold again. It's first owner was persuaded to sell the painting to it's second owner
 under the condition that I be commissioned
 to paint another similar painting as a replacement - then the first owner bought another small Linnyland painting as well!
