"McNeill Bay" (Trial Island) plein air oil 11 x 14

Windy but good to be painting outdoors - a real bounty. That's the CanadianTrial Island lighthouse in the middle distance with the Olympic Mountains (a mile high) of the USA in the far distance. The Strait of Juan de Fuca lies between the two countries. Hi there, neighbours!
