Morning walk with low dark clouds, and satisfying maccha tea…

Here are pics of the seven paintings I have at our show. They are watercolour and ink on 140lb Arches Hot Press paper. Except for no.I, which is a bit larger, they are approximately four by six inches.

Such a beautiful morning at the Dallas Road waterfront. The ocean was calm and the Olympic Mountains were glimmering in the morning sun. Just after I took this, I met Fred the west-highland terrier and his human. Fred sat by my feet while I spoke with his human; I wish I had remembered to take his picture as he was so very sweet.

Lovely break from the rain yesterday and today with warmer temperatures and sunshine. Still a lot of wind, and the waves were stunning crashing, sometimes spraying over the causeway, near the breakwater on Dallas Drive. And then, with winter only one third done, the little snowdrops and crocuses poking up from their slumber. And only a week ago we had snow!

The snowdrops are my particular favourite!

Beautiful whitecaps rolling in.
