One afternoon a couple of weeks ago I painted atop
Anderson Hill overlooking historic Trial Island and
across the strait Juan de Fuca to Washington's
Olympic Mountains. One of those special warm May
afternoons when the winds of the strait were calm and
the late day sun makes those wonderful colours.
The rain shadow effect of the Olympic Peninsula is quite
evident in this scene as the clouds coming in off the open
Pacific pile up against the mountains and away
from us over here in Victoria.
