'September Evening-Highrock',

(Canadian west coast Impressionism, Highrock Park, Esquimalt BC, Western Tanagers, September)

It has been a very hectic past few weeks with art shows and
other related activities and my blogging has been infrequent
to say the least. As well, my painting time has been very
limited. This piece was painted from a photo I took on an
early September evening while up on Highrock for
for a paint out with artist Linny D. Vine.
It was a lovely warm evening and we were very fortunate
to be there just as a large foraging flock of migrating
Western Tanagers arrived to feed, much to the dismay
of several cranky Olive-sided Flycatchers. There was
non-stop activity for over an hour. I went back up the
next evening hoping for a repeat but it was as though
all the birds in the world had vanished!
Oil on canvas 14 x 18.
Your thoughts and comments are always appreciated!

of the universe, a moment that will never be again."

It's great to hear that you have been so busy. I hope you're having a great time. You're very lucky to go on paint outs with Linny! What a day you guys had with the birds. Maybe they're heading our way...

I think the painting "Thetis Island Afternoon" is particularly luminous with the green in the water juxtaposed with the blue in the sky. Just wow!
