"Geographical Marker - Cattle Point" 9 x 12

This is my quick oil sketch done in situ within 90 minutes.  Upon the stone plinth is a brass plaque showing you where the surrounding physical features are located,  i.e. Seattle is 75 miles away from Cattle Point in Victoria BC, San Juan island is seven miles ... and so on.

House in the Woods - oil on board 11 x 14

It is good to be out painting en plein air again. The location is the Esquimalt lagoon at the water side of the Royal Roads University property, (near the boathouse). One of my fellow artists remembers attending parties in this military house when she was a child.
