Dappled Shade

This is a photo I took last October from Porpoise Bay creek looking outwards.  Lots of good views in the Provincial Park.  The thing that caught my eye was the small blue pond reflecting the overhanging leaves, and just a bit of the sky.  I also liked the dappled shade on the gravel bed.

This is an acrylic painting on 24x30" stretched canvas.

Boat House

Sometimes you stand at your easel and the painting just seems to paint itself.  Everything just flows from the brush to the canvas.  This was not one of those paintings, but I was pleased with the end result anyway.  I took the photo in the summer on the beach in Roberts Creek.  I liked the shadow thrown on the boat house...the yellow canoe caught my eye, as did the colourful windsock, and the little yellow weathervane on the roof.

This is 18x24" acrylic on deep canvas.
