summer fun


Ocean Farm available now on eBay

Well, the big ships left us yesterday underneath blue skies and warm balmy breezes. They are now headed north for Cape Breton Island. We drove out to the lighthouse at Chebucto Head to watch them all disperse in the distance. Handy things, binoculars. Many people were out on the grass and rocks high up on the bluff, with picnics, blankets and high spirits. It was fun.

Tonight I think will be a Harry Potter excursion. Off to see the new film:)

Love this one.. and just came from the Vineyard, where there are many oceanside farms! Just saw Harry too.. sad ending, but knew it was coming.. the "kids" are really growing up. Loved it.

You really do have a way with colour and patterns... This painting depicts a perfect summer's day. And what a relaxing time it must have been for you to watch the ships head out. :)

I would have been tempted to stow away on one - what fairy stories might come to mind at sea on such a ship!

Another beautiful painting from me - I feel the warm balmy breezes and smell the grass and ocean air. I would stow away in one of your paintings too.
