Studio 365: Day 363

Day 363 ib

Spanish Banks and the Vancouver Skyline 29.12.15

Back from a wonderful Xmas with family in Los Angeles to enjoy Vancouver at its best today, and this first for me, a rider and his horse on Spanish Banks against the shimmering skyline of the city.

Only two more days to go and just two more months to look back on.

November: After attending the 91st Annual Remembrance Day Service in Victory Square, Vancouver on November 11th…

Day 314

…two days later another day of horror and tragedy in Paris was added to an ever-growing list of days to remember, and Je suis Charlie became Je suis Paris

Day 318 ii

After our never-to-be-forgotten visit to La Belle France in October with dear friends studio-time painting the beautiful places we visited took on a new meaning during November and became a way of showing solidarity with the people of France who made our visit so memorable. This slideshow brings together those paintings, some of which will be familiar to you after yesterdays photos of all the places we visited. I have also included a couple from our visit to London where we began our journey.

One final painting from the end of the month for Day 330 and another favourite for obvious reasons, my father’s tools some of which I had been using to create my representations of the Cave of Lascaux.

Day 330 iv


  1. I have tears in my eyes as I read this … the unspeakable, unthinkable acts in Paris are still raw in our collective consciousness and should remain so but your pictures speak for France as she really is … a fascinating, beautiful, inspiring place. I have only one wish for the New Year and that is that this world we all inhabit can find some harmony, some tolerance and some calm. I fear I may be out of luck, but I can hope and I know I share that hope for the future with you.
