Early in the spring, I put paint to canvas. In October, this large 40 x 30 inch work left the gallery for a trial visit. However, the art collector who is also a newsletter subscriber, had a challenging location and the painting didn’t work in that first desired location. But rather than giving up, she tested in another location… and then another location. The third time was charmed. I saw a sneak preview and believe “When I am Among the Trees” will be most happy there, doing its job of taking the viewer for a walk through the trees into the spirit of the place. And so another landscape painting leaves Mayne Island, and crosses the Strait of Georgia, for a more urban adventure.
