Morning in Courtenay

This trail is a lovely piece of wilderness within the town.

About 200 yards from our front door we encounter Millard Creek. Salmon run here in the fall.

The sky begins to lighten at 4 AM. Here is a quick painting I did of the view from our living room at 5 AM. It is looking back at the mainland to the east.

The dark land is a spot that juts out across our bay. The mountains in the background are on the mainland 20 miles away.


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 forgot to say that the painting is a 6×8 oil.
