'Summer Afternoon - Saanichton Bay'

Low tide on a hot and lazy summer afternoon.
Several Kingfishers were working the shallows as I painted
this piece, hovering and diving. As well many other birds
were busy along the edge of the mudflats, some
grand Blue Herons among them.
Oil on wood panel 11 x 14.
Your thoughts & comments are always valued.

Nicely done, Jeffrey. I so enjoy those lazy afternoons along the bay---through your eyes, of course! You really do capture the feel of the place, and I always hear the lapping of the waves.

Looking forward to more.

Hi Jeffrey!... This litter gem effectively captures that kind of lazy... sultry summer day... when one seems to have a world stood still to one's self!

This is the value of trekking... alone to meet the Creator in his Cathedral... minus the every day din of humanity! Bravo!

Continued Good painting...
Warmest regards,

PS The word verification I had to type in to send this comment?.... Genesis! HAHA!!!
