Rainy Day

Today it is gray and rainy. We had a lazy morning. I spent the time working on some ukulele music and practicing my bass ukulele.

After lunch we walked down the street to the Robert Bateman Centre. He is one of the premiere wildlife artists in the world. We have been here many times and wanted to see his work again. Also today we saw a unique exhibit of his early work, much of which was not wildlife oriented and not in the dramatic style of present day. Here is an example we particularly liked:

Fallen Spruce

This is so inspirational I may have to do some painting after supper.

We returned home along the waterfront. It was drizzling, but the harbor remains quite busy. This gave me the opportunity to get a photo of the diverse craft we see every minute.

Black Ball ferry, sea plane, sailboat, and a kayak with a harbor police boat nosing in from the left.

The harbor police are out there directing traffic all day and providing cheap entertainment for folks like us.


About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.

    I gather that with you a rainy day gives an entirely new set of oportunities ( to paint something new, to practice your music, and so on). So, really, it can never rain on your party. How wonderful!
