Fall in Vancouver

Changing Seasons 8" x 8"

It has been a very grey, rainy fall here in Vancouver. Maybe this painting will help to brighten things up a bit.

Available on Etsy.

Hanging out at the pond.

Feels like spring here in Vancouver, so we will soon be doing lots of this. Throwing something into the pond means you will soon be surrounded by ducks.

We found these fields of wildflowers during a summer hike at the Sun Peaks Ski Resort. We had to navigate through a herd of cattle who were enjoying them just as much as we were.

Autumn Gold

Here’s yet another picture of autumn in the park. I can never seem to capture the varieties of colour – endless shades of orange, fading to yellow, changing to green with a bunch of pink and red thrown into the shady areas. Rather than trying to do it all, I find it’s best to pick a direction and go with it. I decided to let the gold and yellow dominate in this one.

Not really into selfies, but here’s my hand.

Here is yet another tree from Jericho Park. I am so lucky to have this park practically in my backyard. You can see an amazing variety of wildlife on any given day. I have seen: ducks, geese, eagles, herons, bats, harbour seals, rabbits, squirrels, beavers, turtles, racoons, frogs, crabs, all kinds of birds and even a coyote once. Perhaps choosing a tree to paint is a little boring…

Perspective

Drawing things in perspective is not one of my strengths. Half way through this painting, I realized that I had it very wrong. I made some corrections (not easy when the painting is too far along), but I’m still not sure I’ve got it right.

This path runs around Granville Island, on the North side of False Creek. A beautiful walk when it’s sunny.

Painting a little

The latest in my series of tiny paintings. They keep me painting when art time is limited.

Since many of these will be given as Christmas gifts, I decided to make some that are appropriate for the season.

Here comes fall (but not yet).

I may be painting fall, but I’m not done with summer yet. We are off to Summerland next week, to enjoy the last part of August. Looking forward to a change of scenery.
