Evening at High Oaks

This was painted on a glorious evening the day
after solstice. It was the kind of evening that we dream
about during the winter drearies when summer
seems so far away. This hay field, like many other
neighbouring ones, had been mowed that day and the
scent of freshly cut hay filled the evening air.
Oil on canvas 8 x 10.
I am just now getting this posted as things
continue to be quite hectic around here.
I will be taking part in the "15th Annual Gorge On Art" on
Saturday, July 5th, between 11 am and 4pm.
This annual event takes place along the Gorge Waterway
here in Victoria. Over 45 artist will be set up with their
art along the walkway between Tillicum and Admirals Rd.
You will find me at site #7 at the Admirals Rd.
end of the walkway.
Hope to see you there.
"It is impossible for me to make a painting
which has no reference to the powerful environment
in which I live."
