'Maybe in the Spring',

(Canadian west coast Impressionism, plein air oil painting of southern Vancouver Island)

I was out painting last Wed. on the sunniest day we have
had here on the south Island for awhile now.
Many of the low lying fields in our area flood through
the wet season much to the joy of the waterfowl.
Of course these fields will remain much to wet
for the folks who work them till sometime next spring.
The wet areas in the distance were thick with mallards,
pintails and a few ring-necks. A flock of swans were using
a large pond to the left of this scene and so while
painting I had several small groups of swans glide low
over me and land in the pond.
(The snow? Maybe...maybe not?)

Your thoughts & comments are always valued!
Another year has gone by... how'd that happen?
I would like to take a moment to say thanks
to the many of you out there who
have been a much cherished
source of support through this past year of art
and challenges. I hope you all know how
much I appreciate your friendship.
A very 'Happy New Year' to you and
all the best in 2011.
