WAITING OUT THE STORM

NEW WORKS FROM THE STUDIO OF ART BY WENDY

WAITING OUT THE STORM - 5 x 7 - Available
More pictures from our trip to Texada Island off the west coast of British Columbia.
This picture was actually the first I did when we first arrived at Texada Island for our holidays.  We had just had a day of rain, I don’t mean a bit of rain, I mean it rained all day and when it wasn’t raining it was pouring.  The next day was still wet but the sun tried to come out a bit in the afternoon.  We were camped in a trailer but even so I just felt that everything was damp and we weren’t done yet.  The clouds were moving but still thick and by the way the seagulls were staying close to shore I felt they agreed with me. 
WINDY MOMENTS - 5 X 7 - Available
As you can see things did pick up over the next few days.  We had sun, wind and gradually the weather warmed up.  My greatest joy in painting this trip was the clouds.  When you are on the water you can see all kinds of formations as they build over the water and the mountains across the strait.  I really enjoyed painting them as you can see. They were just amazing. 
OFF THE POINT - 3 X 4 - Available
We are off on another trip, this time to northern Canada, Yellowknife in the North West Territories.  My brother and his wife live there and we are looking forward to a nice visit, fishing, a bit of hiking and he has arranged a two day sailing trip on Great Slave Lake.  I probably won’t get much painting done but I am going to try and do some sketching and of course I will have a few pictures to share with you when we get back.

Whenever I view your paintings Wendy, it makes me want to grab my watercolours and paint - they are inspirational and lovely!!! :)
