A Few Artworks

Yes, we have been sketching and painting up here on Vancouver Island as a few of you have asked. Here are pics of some of my efforts.

I have some other sketches done while walking and have other oils in the works. However, there is only so much time for painting between taking long walks and playing music. Of course I also spend lots of hours just watching the tide come in and out in our bay.

Jean has some paintings as well, but I leave it to her to share them.


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.

    What a wonderful way to really examine the details of nature’s wonders. And I love the thought of a vacation so quiet that watching the tide come in and go out is part of it. Mindfulness!

    Wow! I really like the art remains of your trip. Congratulations and now I long to watch them in reality. I also hope that Jean too will post some of her works. Love to both of you from Bogota.
