For whatever unknown reason, my desire to paint has returned! Funny, that, but a dry spell experienced by many fellow painters since the beginning of the pandemic. And perhaps because I have instead been occupied naturalizing a large property, my painterly gaze is falling on the utter loveliness of nature. In particular, its colours. Thus begins the All Things Bright and Beautiful series. This one, from a photo I took at my cousin's place in Qualicum in fall, is titled "A Stellar Stellar's."
