Details at the Beach – Gowlland Point, Pender Island, BC

details on the beach, gowlland point, pender island, bcA little while ago I shared this blog post that highlighted gorgeous scenic views from the beach at Gowlland Point on South Pender Island. The same evening, with the light dipping fast, I was able to capture a few details on the beach.

For a few years I have been painting the theme of macro flowers painted on big to very large canvases. A flower such as the one pictured above always catches my eye as blue isn’t a common flower color and it allows me to paint in a different palette.

Some how these plants survive which is amazing. The same week these images were taken I attempted to dig in one of our flower beds that needs a complete overhaul;  the ground in the flower bed was as hard as concrete, the shovel literally bounced off. We decided that would be a project for the rainy season.

It is so easy to be drawn into the big amazing vistas that the beaches provide, but looking up close lets you see all the wonderful details at the beach.
