Red Canoe

Red Canoe
14x20"

Two weeks ago I taught a workshop at April Point Resort and Spa on Quadra Island. It was the last one before my summer studies started at UVic. I planned on posting it sooner but in my haste to return home my children in Vancouver, I left it at my friend's house in Victoria and undocumented by my camera. Now that I am back in Victoria, I was able to retrieve it and photograph it for all of you to see.
School started yesterday and I am already overwhelmed by the experience. I am considering blogging about it all on a different site. My only drawback is the time. Will I have the time or will I be soooo into painting that I will lose the concept of time? However, I do have to be in classes at certain times so it can't pass me by too much.  It is all still to be determined and I will keep you posted.

Dear Leslie,
Simply "beautiful." Being a mom is a quite demanding, non-stop work. Please take careʚ(ˆ◡ˆ)ɞ.
Kind regards, Sadami

Leslie, it sounds like you're having a super time this summer! And I love how you portrayed the leaves and grass in the red canoe painting.

The way you get textures on your trees is unimaginable. This place looks so dense. And the red canoe admist the greenery is awesome. I wish sometime you could post WIP shots of your trees.

Thank you Sadami. Yes, being a mom is demanding but I love it! Kathryn, I am having a blast!! Still trying to figure out how to get started on my introspection though. Prabal, I will try to post a WIP sometime. The secret is splattering though.
