"Thanks for your kind words Lynne.
I used to live in Vancouver and know it well( sigh-still miss the fish and chips at Spanish Banks near our home)
I'll 'friend' you and we can chat further...
"Gawd almighty. This one is so stunning I might just get religion. Hope you aren't offended. I'm from Vancouver BC originally and you know how uncouth we Westerner are, chuckle. Really this is stunning. How…"
Thanks for the comment. I think that piece was done on birch ply that I gessoed. I work primarily on linen panels, but still do just the gesso on board. It is a different feel when painting.... slippery.
I'm a member of the OPAS and have thought about participating in their paintouts. I'm just not inspired to paint by rural scenes. The urban landscape is more my thing. Thanks for the comment. Jerry
I teach plein air so much and paint for my own shows. I know the group but when I have time i like to paint my own subjects. Stratford has so much great painting locations. Congrats on sun along the Ottawa.
