"The Christmas Day Miracle Walk 2014"

As you may recall, one of our holiday traditions 
 is the "Christmas Day Miracle Walk".
While the festive meal cooks we enjoy a walk
 where we look for Christmas miracles and most often
 discover them in nature.
For this year's CDMW the weather was sunny and 
unseasonably warm - miracle number one!
As we wander the shoreline of Saxe Point Park 
we spy a trio of otters just off shore. 
One of the otters swims towards us and comes ashore 
with a large crab in it's mouth.
While the onshore otter feasts the other two otters 
swim around the point and out of sight.

Once the meal is finished the single otter returns 
to the sea and starts to search and call for the other two. 
Before long the otter calls sound more distressed 
and still the other two otters are no where in sight. 
The single otter swims back and forth along the shoreline,
it's calls louder and louder. 

Finally the two missing otters reappear from around the point, 
the single otter spies them and calls once more, 
the three enjoy a playful reunion before they swim away.

Another Christmas, another magical CDMW!

Hope yours was magical, too!

"Robert Amos, Victoria art writer, includes Linny D. Vine painting on Christmas Wish List!"

Tickled to be on the "Christmas Wish List "
of Victoria Art Writer, Robert Amos!
--from "Art Tips: Tips for putting art under the tree"--
Dec 6, 2014 Times Colonist, Victoria BC Canada:

..."West End Gallery made it hard to choose 
(1203 Broad St,. 250-388-0009, westendgallery.com). 
I love their more whimsical work 
Paul Chester's extruded townscapes, Linny D. Vine's
wonky local scenes in high-key colour, 
and Grant Leier's homilies set in a garnish
 of liberated graphic design. 
There was just one joyous canvas
 of flowers by Claude A. Simard of Quebec. 
Simard has gone to the big studio in the sky."...

"Fulford Farm"

Another Linnyland painting from 
another Saltspring/Salt Spring Linnyland painting adventure.
While I painted a small audience gradually gathered; first a woman visiting SSI on her annual writer's retreat, then one popsicle eating child, then two more, then a father and a sculptor sprawled on the ground next to the easel, and finally a neighbour and her children joined them - and me.
Happy Thanksgiving, Canada! 
May you and your gathering enjoy.

"The Double Umbrella Cabin"

Another from a recent 
Linnyland painting/swimming adventure 
on Saltspring/Salt Spring Island.
From the middle of the lake,
where an Osprey circled and visited during my swim, 
I could see a little blue cabin that I thought I'd like to paint.
But later, when I set up to paint, I discovered that 
there was a tree that blocked the view
of the fine little blue cabin. So, this is
somewhat of "a recollection of that cabin, 
combined with moving a different cabin 
down the mountain side and closer to the lake, 
plus the addition of a couple of yellow striped
 straight out of Linnyland umbrellas type of painting". 
*And, just for a "fun" challenge 
I thought, "I'll forgo using any red paint";
whenever I try this, 
(and all the while that I paint),
my inner voice screams out,

"Cusheon Lake Colors"

Just home from a Saltspring/Salt Spring Island 
Linnyland swimming/painting/swimming/painting/
swimming/swimming/swimming/swimming adventure... 
this one was from the very end of the day with
 a view of the very end of the lake, 
at the (almost) very end of summer. 
It was so dark while I packed my paints 
that the bats were already swooping and 
the little tree frog was headed
out for the night...

"Me, Myself and I" SOLD

Earlier this summer I was commissioned by 
a lovely couple to create a painting in
remembrance of a special daughter.
It was my honour to create this painting
for new Linnyland Collectors, Jim and Alice.
"Me, Myself and I"
oil on canvas
60 x 24

Upon first viewing, with the colours in the 
Collectors' beautiful home reflected in their painting, 
the immediate response was, 
"Linny, it's as though you painted the painting here!", 
followed by the happy exclamation of, 
"It's even better than I thought it would be!" 
And later, "We see something new, something 
more complex every time we look at it. 
We cannot thank you enough."
