A little building I have called Artist's Cabin as I could see this as a beautiful place to have for a studio way out looking over some beautiful countryside.
This particular barn we saw in Ontario but it could be Mr. Barn anywhere. SOLD
This picture intrigued me to try to paint the feeling of a Metchosin shed/barn that has been left to fall into ruin. The moss and the green overtake what it once was. Sometimes we can relate to the feeling of "caving in".
What do you mean you don't see all those colours when you look at the roofs below you? This row of houses spread out below the next level of houses gave a full view of the roof tops and overlooked the whole city. What fun!
This was a lighthouse we saw in our travels to Nova Scotia
My grandfather built this barn in the early 1900s and it served the family for over 60 years. It does not stand today, so here I have brought it back to life. It housed many a head of cattle in rural Manitoba. The birch trees waved in the breeze and left an eerie, but calming memory from visits in my childhood. Collection the artist.
Pendray House in the Fall attracted us to make it a spot for plein air painting. This building now houses Coast Collective an artist's busy site with Gift Shop, Gallery, classes, studio space and many more things to come. Situated on the Esquimalt Lagoon seen here in the distance, it is an artist's dream spot.
