Bennett Bay Silver and Gold on Mayne Island

It has been too long since I have taken you on Mayne Island walk with me hasn’t it? All this traveling about and painting trips has left little room for posting any part of these daily adventures. But there was a break in the heavy rain late in the afternoon yesterday. So I thought you might like to pull on your rubber boots and meander along with us for a short while.

I never seem to tire of photographing this scene. You may remember one from last year with the sun coming through the fog.

This image is in my latest MAYNE ISLAND TIME 2015 Calendar for the month of March. The calendar is also offered as part of the Mayne Island Virtual Travel Package that will be available for online Art Collectors as an appreciation for those that purchase an original painting 12 inches or more on all sides during the Open Studio event November 8th and 9th of 2014. There will be three appreciation packages. Two for online visitors and one for in-person studio visitors. I will be posting more of the details for this event on Tuesday this week. So please do keep an eye out for the post. I am pretty excited about getting this double online and in-person event put together for you. Getting everything ready is a lot of work but so worth it! But let’s get back to our walk.

Today, the mystery of fog has vanished but the last of the heavy rain is still dripping through the trees and sloshing under our feet.

The sea turns silver copper in its reflect while we walk the shore. It is a good day, this day with the brilliance of natures display.

Now it is tomorrow and we watch and wait again to see what is on offer. I am hoping for sun or at least bright skies around midday so I can do the final photograph for THE OLIVE TREE painting. But we shall have to wait and see.

May your weekend allow for a long walk in a place that feeds your well-being.

  1. Today I found my silver and gold in nature as my daughter and I rode our horses down the side of the gravel road we live on. There was a little nip in the air, but the sun was shining and the leaves would drift down around us when a slight breeze blew.

  2. Terrill – I love it when you take your readers along on a virtual tour. Thank you for the visual treat!

    Like Mayne Island, here in Boise, Idaho we, too, are enjoying the vivid colors. It seems the Pacific Northwest has an artistic knack for autumnal splendor.
