Oh, Gabriola

10" x 10" - Oil on Canvas

This is my offering to the Gods of Creativity for days 7 & 8.  (Day 6 was pottery class and I'm not sure those items will ever be shown to anyone!)
Gabriola is such a beautiful island.  I have been lucky enough to visit there a few times; twice for painting trips and always with dear friends.  While there we stayed at The Haven which is situated right on the beach.  In the evening after dinner, you can wander out and watched the sunset or stroll down the beach.  There is a lot of limestone on Gabriola and the beach on the left side of the The Haven has quite a collection of Inukshuk's that people have created.  This is my rendering of one of them.

  1. Smiling over your pottery creations ever seeing this page! Know that I will demand to see them when I am there because I have made my share of wonky, uncentered, heavy-bottomed pieces of clay - you can hardly call them functional pottery - BUT, I'm here to tell you that the odd one will please you. Certainly the entire exercise is most humbling and it gives you a huge respect for potters!
    Thanks for the memory of The Haven and our time together there. xox
