I think I've been missing spring and summer, it's not that it has been a particularly cold or rainy winter, or has it...? But I miss flowers and kayaking when it's not super cold... So what do I do? I paint where I want to be.
Last spring I took a walk along Francis Point Peninsula, it was a lucky day, the light pink wild flowers were out, I knew immediately I would want to paint them. Snapped lots of pictures, and now, that it's cold, rainy and freezing, the time came. And here they are.
Poppies are on my mind, nice bright happy flowers... The image below was from one of my kayaking journeys, the sky was so blue, the tree was leaning out, and there was actually a deer walking down the hill eating grass and leaves. It was a memorable day, and now even more memorable with the painting.
