Barbara Muir © 2013Here's what I've been working on today. I'm getting together
some work for the summer. Last year we went on a road trip
to Prince Edward Island (P.E.I.) from our school house in
Nova Scotia. Although the trip crossed through three
of Canada's 10 provinces (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick
and Prince Edward Island,) it doesn't take long to get there,
but we dawdled, taking photos all along the route and enjoying
In Victoria P.E.I. I took lots of pictures for future paintings,
having that "Oh look!, Wow!, Oh isn't that beautiful!"
response around every corner.
This scene is only partially finished, but it's already got the colours
that took my breath away when I was there. P.E.I.'s colours
are dazzling. It's supposed to be a bit like Ireland. I'll
warn my friends in Ireland now, that if that's true, when I
visit Ireland I may not come back home.
Have a summer-is-around-the-corner day.
