I have started the residency at Francis King and it has been busy! Today is going to be very busy as it is the Love a Slug or Snail program and there are 40 registered in three sessions. Yesterday I took a Moss workshop and it was great. Then I did a moss study and this painting of the old Maple Tree outside the Nature house. I have decided to post one image a day- usually a sketch- so that you'll be inspired to come out to the park. The finished works I leave for the open house and my show at Saanich Municipal Hall in the fall.
