East Point Saturna Island BC
rainy and had to return another day to finish
30 min in the rain and 3 hr in the sun painting
I am in the seam of the rock locked in place. I feel weighed down with open freedom way above me. The green oval rocks locked in place in the cliff radiate around me. The rock is scratchy sandstone. I use a bristle brush to make scratchy strokes.
In front of me is an amazing view of the ocean. I find it hard to just pick just one point of view to paint. The deep ocean with seals swimming looks like a more appealing choice than staring at a sandstone cliff but I chose it and I stick with it - geology is lovely too. A cliff swallow's nest is above where I paint. The second time I come back the babies are gone. A lot changes in 9 days.
It is so fun and inspiring to have others to paint with and kind of them to jumpstart my project by painting alongside me.
The first-day, Robin S. of Instagram feelsbyseals
and Jasper my nephew
When it rains it is so dangerous getting out. The sandstone becomes slippery and slopes right into the deep ocean with strong currents. Jasper my nephew is wearing runners with bad treads falls and scrapes his wrist.
On the second day my son, Marshall paints with me. I set up the new easel and pallet that I bought especially for him, now our painting gear matches. He paints fast and thick. He is covered in blue paint when he is done.
