Fisgard Lighthouse, 6x6, oil

I did this little gem with the Alfrescoes today at Fort Rodd Hill.

This painting will take a week to dry. In the mean time I will put it on an auction for 7 days.  If it doesn't sell on auction I'll then bring it to the causeway and sell it.
The starting bid is $49 plus $10 shipping and handling.

Sunflowers and Apples, oil on wood, 12 x 14

I did this today in my friend Bonny's garden. I find it a bit too messy and might adjust the lights and darks when it's dry enough. Looks best from a distance. :)

Regan Ridge, 6x6, oil on panel

This morning's effort at Holland Point. Just as I was considering the title a gentleman observer commented that that is Regan Ridge across the way. A beautiful hike with lots of wild flowers. Just beneath the white peaks is Port Angeles. So this little painting covers two countries.

This is for sale on an auction at a starting bid of $49

Holland Point Snag, oil on board, 6inx6in

I've been neglecting my daily painting lately so I decided  to get back into little ones. Though they take the same time as the larger ones they are better for experimenting. Today I wanted to get good color  harmony and depth so I chose to do a little seascape. This is one of my favorite spots.

This painting is on an auction at a starting bid of $49.

Lavender Farm Paint Out, acrylic 16x20

I painted with the Alfrescoes today at the Saltspring Lavender Farm in Sidney. It was the nicest and most fragrant place in the world.

Beacon Hill Park Scene, acrylic on canvas, 16x20

I did this today as a color exercise. I couldn't resist painting the shadows before the end of the painting and I had to keep changing them. Argh!
