'October Sun - Swan Lake'

The October sun's warmth feels like a stranger
This short respite from the rain and wind
Sharing this lull with the Towhee's and Jay's
Their warning calls as the Cooper's 

Glides low over our heads
Hunting with all the avian activity below it
I make a new memory with each blink
Breathing it in along with the scent of
Damp leaves and dead grass and the warmth...

'October Oaks - Highrock'

As we await another wind and rain storm here
on southern Vancouver Island, it is a bit
of a treat to look back at some recent
plein airs. When thoughts of wind and of heavy rain
seemed distant and remote on such a beautiful
early fall afternoon up on Highrock.
