  Summer 2019

Photo by Linda

The trip to Nova Scotia exceeded my expectations with stunning scenery only surpassed by the wildlife. Our trip in early June coincided with a Bay of Fundy new moon tidal bore of 42 feet and the three of us watched a wide river rise ten feet in 15 minutes. On the boat trip around the Bird Islands we saw nesting puffins, razorbills, great blue herons, bald eagles, double crested cormorants, and black guillemots. A moose along the Cabot Trail was a wonderful addition.

Expect to see some upcoming paintings inspired by this Canadian Atlantic province.

This summer we have a new addition to the family. Orca is a black and white kitten we adopted from Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service, a local rescue center. She is a ball of energy and enjoys studio time where she’ll chase empty tea bag sleeves, sit in the chair next to me watching my brush, or fall asleep in my lap while I paint.

One of the things I love about living near Spokane, Washington, is that we have four seasons. Each has its charms, but I appreciate the beauty and wildlife of spring the most. As vegetation greens and flowers start to bloom, the hummingbirds return, tom turkeys strut in our yard, pileated woodpeckers and ruffed grouse can be heard in the woods, and each blade of wild grass seems to sing with new life.

Of all the birds that rejoin us in the spring, my childhood favorite, the goldfinch, is one that still holds a special place in my heart. I hope your spring is bringing you the special joys of the season.
