'October Sun - Swan Lake'


 
The October sun's warmth feels like a stranger
This short respite from the rain and wind
Sharing this lull with the Towhee's and Jay's
Their warning calls as the Cooper's
Glides low over our heads
Hunting with all the avian activity below it
I make a new memory with each blink
Breathing it in along with the scent of
Damp leaves and dead grass and the warmth...

'October Oaks - Highrock'


As we await another wind and rain storm here
on southern Vancouver Island, it is a bit
of a treat to look back at some recent
plein airs. When thoughts of wind and of heavy rain
seemed distant and remote on such a beautiful
early fall afternoon up on Highrock.

'Under A Full Hunter's Moon'


Another one from Highrock and one that has
been in the works for awhile but
waiting for that moment when
inspiration and uhuh came together.
It being Thanksgiving it is appropriate
to reflect on those things large and small
that have made us thankful. 
Though I have many things in my life
I am thankful for, having had the 
opportunity to paint the many little
spots in this little natural wonder is high on the list.
Of course being with Linny on many of
those occasions and together seeing
the flocks and singular birds that stop there
for a short time during migration
before moving on is certainly another.
~~~~~~
HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!

'Peninsula Harvest'


This past Friday morning was the type
of fall morning we plein air painters long for.
Out on the Saanich Peninsula the pumpkin
harvest is in full swing and cabbages not
far behind them. Hope to get
out painting quite a bit while this
weather holds...
