'Camas Tapestry'

Early morning shadows, bright sun, warm temperatures,
brilliant carpets of wild Camas Lily's and dozens of
swooping swallows hunting insects to feed their
broods made last Friday's paint out so very special.
For me the return of the swallows and the Camas Lily
 bloom time is the highlight of spring here
on Southern Vancouver Island.
Now where did I put the time delay device...
Oil on wood panel 9 x12.
Thoughts & comments always welcome!

Bright, cheerful and beautiful. I think the time delay was the moment you captured in paint. You've preserved it for everyone!

Hi Jeffrey!... A lovely painting... full of warm colour and words that kindle Hope and Possibility! Uplifting!

The swallows are back here as well. I sat out at Rumble's Pond for over an hour just watching the joyous swooping and aerial antics... that says Summer is on the way!

I saw an Eastern Bluebird last evening! Pure joy - just the sight of it! We are both blessed my Friend!

Good painting!
Warmest regards,

The bush work is great in this.It really gives it a voice all of it's own.
