'Michell's Farm' **SOLD**

plein air oil painting, Canadian west coast Impressionism, Saanich Peninsula, fruit & vegetables

The Michell farm is one of the older ones on the
Saanich Peninsula. The family home sits high on a ridge
above the valley featured in this piece. Many of the
vegetable fields in this painting are part of their large fruit
and vegetable operation. Once again this year our
non-group group (the Victoria Al frescoes)
was granted permission to range over
the farm and paint. This one was painted from the entrance
to their driveway. That's garlic in the very foreground as
well in the distance, fields of corn, cabbage
and big orange pumpkins.
Oil on wood panel 11 x 14.
Your thoughts and comments are always
welcomed and appreciated!

Hi Jeffrey,
I love this painting and your description of the farm. I am immediately taken in by the colours, the lines, the angles. My eye loves wandering through these fields in your painting and once again, great perspective!

Thanks Nicki...I felt quite challenged by the enormity of the scene but I was happy how it turned out. It is something I have been wanting do for some time.
