Sitting in the Morning Sun - 11x14 - Oil on Birch Panel
Sentados al Sol de la Mañana - 28x35cm - Oleo
"Sitting in the Morning Sun" (11x14 - Oil on Birch Panel) was painted this summer during our sailing trip in August. As you may remember, my husband and I spend a month on our sailboat cruising around the Broughtons and Desolation Sound. Many nights, we would drop anchor in quiet bays without any other boats in sight. These coves are usually small and protected with beautiful sights to paint. Many times, the views would be quite closed in, and in the end, I ended up focusing on small, intimate views of several points or islets which didn't include any part of the sky which was different form the landscapes I usually paint. Can you guess what we were listening to as I painted??? Love that song!!
Pinté "Sentados al Sol de la Mañana" (óleo, 28x36cm) este verano durante nuestro viaje en el velero en agosto. Como pueden recordar tal vez, mi esposo y yo pasamos un mes navegando por las Broughtons y Desolation Sound. Muchas noches tirábamos el ancla en bahías muy tranquilas en las que no había ningún otro velero. Éstas bahías son normalmente muy pequeñas y protegidas con vistas hermosas para pintar. Muchas veces estas vistas eran bastante cerradas y al final terminé enfocándome en vistas muy íntimas de islotes sin incluir nada de cielo. Pueden adivinar qué canción estaba escuchando mientras pintaba? Me encanta esa canción!
I am an artist living in Victoria, BC, Canada. I love to paint the beauty around me, capture moments and memories. I paint because the process gives me immense pleasure and joy. I paint because it allows me to remember places I have been to, moments I have lived. Just like music can in an instant transport you to a different time, my art has the ability to take me back in time and place and put a smile on my face. I paint because it allows me to imagine my next trip or my next walk in the woods. It mean it to be an invitation for you to pause and just simply enjoy the moment. Hope you enjoy my art!
