Roe Islet View


Today we went for a wander along the path on Roe Islet. It was a windy day with sparkling light. My goal was to shoot many images as references for paintings, which I did in excess. The twisty arbutus particularly caught my eye, and in fact one painting is part way finished. Hopefully it will be completed tonight and dropped off to a fundraiser on Thursday. Usually I don’t paint so close to a deadline, but my original piece, a Lino cut, I had to temporarily abandon due to slicing my hand while cutting the block. Thankfully everything is healed up and now I will always wear leather gloves while cutting from now on ( and not talk on the phone while cutting as well!).
