We came to Lake Katherine around noon to have our picnic here on the Loon's Island on the shore of Lake Katherine. It was such a tranquil spot when the silence was only broken by the occasional call of the birds. There is sign of fall all around us now and Sarah is leaving for Edmonton to start her second year of university there. It is always sad at the end of summer to see your kid leaving you again.

It is our 24th wedding anniversary and I decided to paint a view of our house. We have been married almost for a quarter of a century now and can not believe how a concrete real life experience could so soon fade into distant past. There is always a mixture of sweet sadness in our emotions.

Came to Deep Bay to paint again when it was much quieter today without much of a disturbance from flocks of tourists. I was attracted by the interplay of warm and cool lights and colors and the shadow casted over the surface of the lake by the spruces on the shore.

Just past Minnidosa drivers will find this view of a valley with a church in the distance on highway No. 10 in Manitoba on their way to Riding Mountain National Park. I painted this view in the late afternoon when the sky was lit from the west by the glow of sunset.
