"Christmas Day Miracle Walk & Dark Chocolate"

December 11, 2013 issue, Black Press, Victoria BC. Canada
Earlier in December, when Jennifer Blyth of Black Press
 asked me about my family's favourite holiday tradition,
 I said that two traditions came to mind; 
 "First, our "Christmas Day Miracle Walk”. 
While the festive meal cooks we enjoy a walk
 where we look for Christmas miracles and often discover
 them in nature, like the year that we wandered
 along the waterfront at Saxe Point Park just as
 a pod of resident orcas swam by.

And, the second tradition is dark chocolate!

Hope your holidays are miraculous (and chocolatey), too!

Wishing you...

Wishing you peace, love light & joy
for the holidays and throughout the new year.

"Early Morning Light"

Happy, Happy Winter Solstice! 
Welcome the return of Light!
As the light returns we may release
 what we no longer want or need in our life into the darkness. 
And with the light we welcome what we wish
to experience and enjoy in our life.

"City Centre" SOLD

This is another painting commissioned
 by the Downtown Victoria Business Association. 
I wandered round and round the perimeter of Victoria's Bay Centre 
and chose this view of the large centre, 
(from Douglas Street and View Street). 
As you can see, in Linnyland, the tree foliage
 was ahead of season
 and turned this scene to 
the golden city center.

"Red Clouds"

From a May evening at Highrock Park 
Linnyland painting adventure.
While I painted there was a group
 of costumed "youngers" playing a 
pretend-world game, the one 
player that I saw the most, and that I saw the most of,
 was costumed in a variety of faux fur bits.
Linnyland meets ? world!!

Linnyland Cover of Monday Magazine!!

"Local artist Linny D. Vine doesn't see the world the same way
 as the rest of us. In Linnyland, buildings dance, and colour, shape and light
 combine to create a feeling of bliss for all who set eyes upon it. 
Life is good in Linnyland. 
This special, vibrant world is a reflection
 of the minds' eye of local artist Linny D. Vine, a celebrated painter
 represented by galleries across North America. 
You can read more about Vine in Monday's Summer Guide."
