We came across this surviving Dodge truck on the quay at Telegraph Cove, Vancouver Island. At a guess I would say that it dates back to the war years 1939-1945. If you know the actual year of manufacture, please let me know by clicking on COMMENT below and sending a message

I learnt that the rocks of these vertical columns are firmer than the surrounding material, so, through the erosion process over thousands of years these sea stacks are formed. Anyway, they make excellent subjects for the artist. I found them on the coast of Washington State. I decided to render them with a looser approach than the style I usually employ.

It was a strange morning because fog rolled in and hid the horizon for at least forty minutes. Some artists packed up and left, others stood around and chatted until the weather cleared. And it did.
