In mid August Cathy and I left Comox for Ontario to spend 6 weeks with our family there. We took our RV, headed into Washington State and did the Cascades region, which we had not seen before. Then up into Southern BC and across Canada to Ontario. The trip was easy (for a change), uncomplicated by bad weather or problems of any type.
|We really enjoy our 24 ft unit - e bikes on the back.|
|In Saskatoon we enjoyed the hospitality of painter and photographer Delee Grant and her husband Larry.|
I packed an acrylic kit to use in our rented condo on arrival and an oil kit for plein air along the way. I decided NOT to pack my acrylic plein air kit - to force me to work with the oils and not have my more comfortable acrylics to fall back on when I got frustrated. Goal was to experiment with new and different brushes on different surfaces - linen or smooth gessoed MDF board.
I made about 20 small pieces along the way, all needing "tweeking". Below I have shared a few.
Will try to keep in touch - grand-kids permitting.
