Weather


Campbell River, BC and the wind is blowing a gale. We are tied up at the dock, but I can venture out to peek at Quadra Island across the water. In imitation of Whistler, I created a verbal description of the scene and then came back to the shelter of the boat to paint what I described. It's a very different way to work. And I kind of like it!

Excellent! At first I thought it was a photograph taken out the window of the boat.

eNow, this is nice weather! Easy for me to say, but you never would've painted this if the sun was shining. Let's hear it for the soup you're in!

Great capture. I can just imagine it. I'm glad you're at the dock. Mmmm... check running lights just to make sure there are no shorts.

what was the verbal description? I could guess "rain and cold" ?
This is nice. Like Haiku
