Thank-you to all that attended 
with Linny D Vine ... 

AND thank-you to all at OPUS, too - we had FUN 
combining Linny Cherry Blossoms, a Linny VW Bus & a Linny Lighthouse 
ALL together in one Linnyland painting!!"

"Are we ready? Let's all go to Linnyland!"

"This fun and informative demo 
gives a view into the creative process 
Linny utilizes in the creation of her 
Linnyland - Linnyism style paintings. 
Linny will discuss inspiration, subject matter, 
acrylic and/or oil painting materials and techniques 
as she demonstrates with paint, brush and canvas. 
See how Linny translates sights and sensations 
of our world into paintings that dance with a life and joy 
that’s uniquely their own.
Linny D. Vine’s distinctive and evocative 
contemporary paintings are treasured 
in Collections throughout the world. 
Whether Linny paints en plein air or in studio, 
with oil or with acrylic, she combines imaginative vision, 
exceptional design skill and expressive brushwork 
to create Linnyland, a magical world of contemporary nostalgia.
Linny has enjoyed numerous solo exhibitions and taken part 
in important group exhibitions in public and private galleries 
across Canada and the USA, her work has featured in a variety 
of magazines and literature, she has been interviewed 
about her art for print media and television and is represented 
by commercial art galleries across Canada."

A SUPER morning at Art Gallery of Greater Victoria yesterday as 
AGGV Associates' Invitational Guest Speaker - subject of talk;
 "Linny, Linnyland & Linnyism"!!
On this sunny Spring-like morning we were all greeted 
by a blossoming Linnyland Cherry tree painting

("planted there" courtesy of Claire Aitken, 
AGGV Art Sales & Rental Consultant), 
then the wonderful group of Associates "adventured" with me in 
Linnyland and one Associate "travelled" home 
with a wee Linnyland VW Van/Bus, 
"Tiny Tripper" ©Linny D. Vine - one of two Linnyland VW Van-Buses 
added to private Collections this weekend!!

 PLUS, there was opportunity to visit with more 
of AGGV's amazing staff, 
AND two of my favourite Historical Canadian Artists; 
Emily Carr and Pegi Nicol Macleod. 
As I said, "A SUPER MORNING" in Linnyland!!

Emily Carr's "Blue Sky"

Because I was asked if the orbs are part of the painting: 
the orbs in the photo are not part of Emily's painting. 
But, are we thinking spirit orbs? 
Are we perhaps thinking a literal visit with Emily? An Emily visitation?! 
but "A SUPERNATURAL MORNING" with Emily Carr in Linnyland!!!!" 
... Here's what google says..."What does a blue orb mean?
"Blue is spiritually associated with psychic energy and truth. 
It is a very calming color, and many people associate it with spiritual guidance. 
Some people feel blue orbs are a sign of a calming presence or energy, 
while others feel they indicate the presence of a spirit guide in that location."
