The sun came out yesterday afternoon and lit up MacKinnon Road on Pender Island. I have always loved this sleepy little road and am so happy to call it home.
There are some lovely weathered buildings on Pender Island. They speak of another time, of promises made and broken, of dreams yet to come.

I am so happy to have my piece Broken Promises. The Politician's Armour. After the Election, included in the Salt Spring National Art Prize Parallel Show at ArtSpring in Ganges, Salt Spring Island. I was lucky enough to be able to go and see this show last week and it is a beautiful, vibrant show. Gorgeous work, artfully hung in a lovely space.
The Pillars of Hercules.
The Man in the Iron Mask.
The results of a summer rain storm.
While visiting my friend, Sarah, in Dorset we took a day to revisit our childhood haunts in Southampton. We both loved the art gallery and that was our first stop. We reveled in the beauty of The Perseus Series by Edward Burne Jones, a favourite of our teenage selves. Still looking stunning in its own wood paneled room. What memories lie here.
