"Solace"  24 x 48" acrylic
It's rare that I paint something that I'm perfectly happy with. My reach is always a little beyond my grasp. But this one comes pretty close. It is an image that I just love, of a place that never fails to be magical for me. After a lot of ups and downs in my life this year, I am naming this painting, "Solace" because that's what this place is for me.

I will be entering this painting in the annual Spillsbury Medal show at the Federation Gallery in Vancouver. The show opens on December 6th, and it's always a beautiful show to see, as the signature members of the FCA put forth their best work. It will also be the Christmas party for the FCA so come by if you are in the area.
