"Cherry on the Rocks" 9 x 12

Beacon Hill Park above Queens Lake facing away from the Petting Zoo. The sun came and went, and at the end of the paint-out it rained. Otherwise a fine painting day al fresco.

Two paintings in the sun today

"Cherry Tree - Moss Street #2" 6" x 8" oils
See this plein air study at the Morris Gallery in Victoria BC.

I popped down to Moss Street and painted this particular tree - a passing student from the nearby central school looked over my shoulder and said to his mates "why is he painting a tree?" Why not? Man makes cars, boats and 'planes but only God can make a tree. The above cherry tree oil sketch took me an hour, so at 4pm we drove to Oak Bay marina and spent another hour painting this second sketch:

"The Boulder and the Boat"

8" x 10" oils
The works are for sale, use this small white envelope below to ask me about pricing and shipping.
