Taking it to the Campsite!

The extended, unseasonably warm weather continues to amaze us. With temperatures in the high teens this past week we decided to take the R-Pod out for one last trip of the year. On October 20, at Beauvais Lake, we were greeted with naked trees but there were no other campers in sight. These are special times when we can get away alone, without Internet, phone or TV.

While Bill went fishing, I found it warm enough to paint outside on the first day (when we forgot to photograph me) but a bit too chilly to work outdoors on the second day, so I set up on the dinette ...

I'm working on a collection of small paintings for CHRISTMAS in the COUNTRY at The Leighton Centre, 15km southwest of Calgary ... November 6th & 7th. For more information:

The annual event was started by Barbara Leighton herself, over 30 years ago. This year there will be 84 artists and artisans! Each painter is permitted to bring up to 15 paintings, unframed and priced to sell. This painting, finished while "camping", will be included:

Bouquet of Sunshine oil 8" x 10"
