A gentleman from Brandon came to talk to me while I was working on my second painting in front of the information centre. He asked me for a painting of the tennis court off the beautiful path along the lake front. I came to the court to paint when it was already late in the afternoon . It was so quiet there and, a young couple were playing with their cheerful voice echoing over the park. Certainly a beautiful and memorable moment !
Early Saturday morning we drove to Clear Lake. What a beautiful drive at this time of the year! It was so quite all along the high way , and there was not much of a traffic , and we had the pleasure of feeling as if the view all around us with its fantastic fall colors were all there for us alone to enjoy! We met Dave and Ann at Elkhorn Range who stayed there for the week , and together we drove to the lake. I painted right away the first view that caught my eyes , excited by the vibrant Gorden yellow color of the foliage of the birch tree.

On Cultures Day Canada today , I came early this morning to Dinsdale Park to give whoever comes here a free workshop on how to do plein air painting as part of the whole Canada wide activities. As I set up my easel,the thick fog started to dissipate but I stayed with the initial impression of the view.

The vibrant color of the tree stood out against an otherwise rather gloomy sky. Sitting on our patio, and using the back of a chair as an easel , I did this quick oil sketch before supper. I will start my first painting class tonight at the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba. It is always a joy to share the joy of painting with people who have the same passion and desire.
