There are times that you find that the landscape (or seascape here) that you wish to paint has at times one characteristic that so dominates all other aspects of the landscape that it becomes what the painting is all about. We were on a painting trip up in the San Juan Islands in the NW, a French world famous ocean explorer named Jacques Cousteau once referred to these islands as “the cold water Caribbean” and he is right. They are a wonder. These islands are beautiful and the ocean around the islands teaming with rich sea life. All of this a stones throw away from Vancouver Island BC Canada to the north. It truly is an ocean paradise. We were staying with and painting with a friend of ours on Friday Harbor Island. The anticipation and excitement of the coming day of painting and exploring would not let me sleep. So, I was up before dawn. After making my cup of coffee and dressing, Susan and I went out into the dark cool damp sea air and walked down to the water. It was a sea channel a quarter mile or so wide that attracted boats to come moor for the night as the boats of all kinds need a safe haven at night so they can sleep in safety. The sky began to lighten. The morning sun was behind a light layer of clouds that was turning the light cast on everything a beautiful red. Amplifying it all was a lite morning mist that seemed to capture and amplify the already red glow. Everything was some form of red. It was other worldly. Looking at Susan I asked if it could really be real. The glow lasted even after the sun was high enough to send jewels of light out over the water. If I was not here, I might not believe it, but I was and It was.
