WPC: Layered

Layered I 20.9.17

In response to this week’s Photo Challenge: Layered in which Ben asked us to “explore the interplay of texture and depth” and share “a layered image of your own,” it was out to the studio and a serendipitous exploration of the merging of layers of acrylic colours, the results of which couldn’t have been more pleasing. I hope you agree.

Deltaport variation 2.9.15, matted and framed.

Returning from Vancouver Island one stormy August evening in 2015 led to this painting of the cranes of Deltaport against a fiery night sky at sunset and painted two years ago today.

With this post I am thinking of all the recent and ongoing natural disasters around the world this summer, the catastrophic flooding in Texas and South Asia and the wild fires here in British Columbia, all of which have led to so many lost homes and treasured possessions and to too many lost lives for whom today’s post is dedicated together with the volunteers and neighbours helping neighbours who are showing the best of humanity in these troubled times.

Flying into Vancouver on the weekend the shadows cast from the different architectural structures of bridges, freeways and buildings in the setting sun had a beauty all of their own and made for a wonderful welcome home.
