New Moon & Lighthouse

Only four more days
 until Winter Solstice...and then the return
 of the LIGHT!
(According to Linny-Lore,
 it's tradition to celebrate Winter Solstice
in this way: write a list of what 
you'd like to leave behind along with the darkness, 
then write another list of what you'd like to welcome into
your life along with the return of the light.)
And speaking of light, here is the Brockton Point Lighthouse,
 in Stanley Park,  in Vancouver BC,

Summer on the Big Lake

As the Christmas cards arrive
I'm enjoying a summertime flashback

swimming adventure

Downtown Date SOLD

This one started (way back in July) when the
 Art Gallery of Greater Victoria invited me
 to participate in their first ever Paint-In the Square, 
(in honor of the city of Victoria's 150th Anniversary).
The event's on site coordinator and all round fantastic guy,
 Ben Fast, recorded his take on the day here .
The building in this painting is Victoria's City Hall, 
which is beside the "Paint-In the Square's", 
Centennial Square. As I painted the building
 these two figures appeared on the canvas.
(Linnyland paintings evolve to include 
whatever shows up on the canvas while I paint.)
 And, I just learned that beautiful Melanie listened carefully
 as I explained how this sort of thing occurs in 
Linnyland paintings, with her kind words she has
 described it here 
I love her description,"heart-centered", 
which has me thinking of how fortunate
 I am to enjoy heart connections
 with art blog buds like you!
To all of you on my blog roll, 
(and others who check in here)
 thank-you for your blog budness,
 your heart connections
 and your beautiful art, too!

Big Sky - Burgoyne Bay

This is another one from a recent Salt Spring Island
 Linnyland painting adventure.
From my Burgoyne Bay/Linnyland hayfield perspective the sky
 appeared to be framed by Mount Maxwell on one side
 and Mount Sulivan on the other and 
 what I really wanted to do was lay on my back and paint
 the amazing sky. Or I did, until the rain started to POUR down and easel, painting, pallet, brushes, backpack and painter performed an awkward but fast waltz for cover within good old Vinny Van Go.
