Exploring Ships Point Road I landed at Ships Point Park. It’s a very rocky pointy-shaped park on a spit with a dramatic view of Deep Bay.
Exploring mid-island I had to pull over at the first view of water along Ships Point Road.
Cooling down at Sunny Beach.
The velvety petals are captured on the texture of watercolour paper, mmm-mmm, nothing like it when you can hold it in your hand!
We met at the Buckley Bay rest area at 1:00. We meet again May 14 at Rosewall Park – see you there! Although it started to rain after the first hour, we had an awesome time. And cuz it’s outside we can be covid-safe. I’m hopeful more will show up each Friday at one o’clock….
Adirondack chairs served up fruity.

With my very good friend, a watercolour painter like me, after a whole year later than planned, we finally got outside last Saturday to paint together. There were so many distractions, like beautiful birds, and driftwood and dogs, that we didn’t actually paint much. So when I got home to my orderly and functional studio…
MAR 2019: capture a wave.
JUN 2018: tho winter is so dark and grey, must get outside to play.
MAY 2018: paint the same subject in a different way.
SEP 2017: show the end of summer.
Mission: create a feeling of tension and uncertainty.
Mission: create fog and mist with paint on paper.
Mission: read the tides, currents, charts, shipping lanes and weather before heading out.
Mission: show the close proximity of the islands on a clear day.
The blank sheet of watercolour paper is sometimes daunting. Or sometimes you are lost in the quagmire of self-doubt. Or whether there’s any point in painting another painting…
