Spring Into Summer

This has been a record cold spring on Vancouver Island.  I am still planting out my tomato seedlings.

However, that has meant I have had more time to work on some art.  It seems that my art focus has been changing and I am now interested in marine art. Surprise!  Here is my very first wave painting done just for fun and to experiment with the colours.  I used a photo reference from a trip to Tofino a few years ago.
Let's hope for some warm and sunny summer weather soon.

As the Vancouver Island Representative of Seeds of Diversity Canada, I will be at both the Victoria and Cobble Hill events. Be sure to stop by my display to say hello if you can attend either one.
