The wooded front yard of our next-door neighbour offered a unique view in the late afternoon when the sun was breaking out of the clouds transfiguring all of a sudden the view in front of me into something beyond verbal descriptions.

Our neighbour has restored this old vintage car to its original condition with such a craftsmanship. I just felt sorry that I was unable to match his skill with my painting skills. I sketched in oils his beautiful car on a partially cloudy morning when it was parked in front of his garage on a back alley on Balmoral Bay, Brandon.

I finally got a chance to come to the grounds of the former Brandon Mental Health Center on a Saturday afternoon. The old nurses' building has been converted to a Culinary Art Teaching Center for Assiniboine Community College now. I painted against receding afternoon sunlight and finished it in two hours.

Can I claim this wood as my own? I have painted here so many times now. The wooded area next to our house is getting smaller with fewer and fewer trees remaining standing there now. Each year we see more of them gone due to weather and their age. Painted this after work in a rush.
