Last Summer Revisited

Kyoquot Entrance
28 in x 39 in
Oil on canvas

Yearning for summer and putting that paddle in the water again... I worked from a moody image from our September trip on the west coast of Vancouver Island. Paddling through the mist toward the entrance to the inlet, one always wonders what lies in wait out in the open water. Once past those islands will it be big and scary? or will this mellow mood carry on, and the wind stay low and kind to kayakers? I hope that some of those feelings come through in this painting.
