I Struck Gold

Goodbye weekend... I love you! XOXOXO... Hope to see you soon. :)

It has been raining raining raining but along came Saturday with some sun at last. Yay! So out we go again to Barnet Marine Park. See pictures from our last visit here and here. Once again, we were welcomed with gorgeous blue skies under the warm sun, making this another pleasant trip.
We were surrounded with trees full of yellowing leaves. I honestly think they look like little pieces of gold foil fluttering in the autumn breeze.
I found a single leaf floating with the current, it circled and circled. The journey of the yellow heart... who knows what next weekend will bring?

Autumn Shadows

It's actually raining and gloomy right now, forecast says it'll stay this way well into next week. Oh how I long for sunshine... With this in mind I head into my stash of sunny pictures from last weekend... Ahhh, our visit to the Dr. Sun Yat Sen Chinese Garden located in Vancouver Chinatown. The Autumn afternoon rays had cast these long long shadows all over the garden. That's my shadow in the picture below.

Nice to Meat You

Is the title I gave to this painting. The idea came to me a few days ago while I was falling asleep. I wanted to paint something humorous for the show coming up in November. Yikes! That's less than 3 weeks away and this is my first completed piece.Size is 4" x 3" and 1.5" deep. I decided to paint the sides a simple pattern but of a darker tone to make the painting stand out. Okay, now I'm off to do some more painting.

Fall near Our Place & Thank You

It's Thanksgiving long weekend here in Canada. We decided to head out and enjoy the gorgeous fall weather today. Just a few blocks down the street I noticed the trees are changing into this nice red color, here's some pictures I took of them today.

I also would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you who visit my site. I really appreciate your taking the time to comment, your kind words mean the world to me.

Shades of Fall

It's October now, where did September go? I have spent the last month working on something new in my sketchbook, drawing almost every day. I have been invited to submit some paintings at a friend's open house in November. This will be my first show and sale, somewhat nerve-racking, but I'm still going.

Phew! Now that I've offloaded that bit of news... onto some pictures I took the last couple of weeks. Of fallen leaves and color changing leaves from our various visits to the different parks. Tomorrow we're power washing the garage here at the apartment, I'm hoping Sunday will be more fun. 'Til then, have a great weekend and enjoy the sunshine!
