Farm machinery is tricky. I thought I’d emulate Frank who always seems to pick the unusual to paint.
This is the one I did first – looking out to the Juan de Fuca Strait. What a beautiful view from this piece of paradise!
I’m happiest with this portrait, as I was able to fuss less and enjoy more! Each time I paint I learn something.
The third in my series of grandchildren’s portraits.
Originally I painted this as a full body picture, but I couldn’t get parts of it right. At home, working from a photo I did just the head and shoulders. Loving the practice!
This one was done as a birthday portrait! I am enjoying painting people because it is a challenge.
The sea seemed to melt into the land today – the choppy waves reflected the colours of the grasses and rock, as bits of wood bobbed about on the surface.
The world was pink this day. While my artist’s eye sees the pink as somewhat unusual and unique, the knowing part of me thinks about the forest fires that are increasing with climate change. Yes, I can see the beauty – and I must also be mindful of my impact on the world.
My granddaughters at Elk Island Park – what a gorgeous day in July!
It was a perfect time with the Al Frescoes at Beaver Lake Ponds – just a few days before the summer equinox.
