Going Away

I’m absolutely thrilled to have finished this painting, for the second time. The first time was a little 6″ x 6″ panel that I sold on DailyPaintworks, way too quickly and way too cheaply! I’ve missed it ever since. Some images stick with you for life, and this is one of them. I have to admit, it is not my own, and I so gratefully borrowed it with permission from HaoJanChang on Flickr. I fell in love with it when I saw it, and had to paint it immediately. It speaks to me of longing, of nostalgia, of yearning and mystery. Ever since it sold, I’ve wanted to do a larger version, and maybe keep it for myself. Unless there is someone out there who loves it more than me!

It’s oil on 16″ x 16″ cradled panel, an inch and a half thick. It shows some nice juicy brushstrokes, and the color is better in real life. I hope you love it!

After a tumultuous past as a goat milker, laundress, fine art major, waitress and restaurant owner, I've now downscaled to running my own Cafe/Gallery in an effort to maintain a social life and make a few bucks. I live a ridiculously idyllic existence in a fairytale village called Bella Coola on the West Coast of British Columbia with my charming musician husband, two amazingly creative children, and a dog whose favourite past time is eating rotten dead fish and rolling in poo. In my not so spare time I love to invent healthy whole food recipes, write YA fiction, play guitar, or curl up in my favourite chair with a great book and a gigantic mug of strong black coffee, all while daydreaming of living in Ireland...
