“All things want to float as light as air through the world witnessing all that is. I am a mote of dust floating freely in the firmament, a person who merely is, and I feel full of joy for all worldly treasures, the immaculate gift of life.”
― Kilroy J. Oldster

I’m quite enjoying my new found hobby and getting the feel of the brush. This is my 9th painting, since taking it up in February. I have the advantage of having many photographs to base the paintings on, though I take quite a bit of liberty in my interpretation of the final image. I also have the advantage of being able to photograph them and retaining all the true colors.
The basis of this image was a canoe trip into Ontario’s Algonquin park, many years ago. I clearly recall the colours of the clouds on that warm, midsummer day, splashes of pinks amid the pure whites. Fond memories of blissful days on the water in my canoe.
