Securing one's footing and leaning up to the edge of a Prince Edward Island red sandstone cliff that is tipped towards the sea is a good reminder of the eternity of change.
Cape Bear is on the eastern side of Prince Edward Island and this view is located where the Cape Bear lighthouse has been moved away from the edge of the eroding shore. It was spring when I was there with moody muggy weather enhancing a natural melancholy that comes with such a simplistic view.

I am working in walnut oils to get all the soft muted tones this piece needs. My intention is to keep the lively sketch feel to the work from beginning to completion. This will likely be an illusion as I suspect the work may have to be completed in layers rather than wet-on-wet to be successful. But it is my birthday today and it seems like working on this painting is about the best way to spend the day ;)

On Edge at Cape Bear PEI 28 x 24 inch oil on canvas
My intention was to have the viewer uncomfortable present to the eternity of change. Seems a fitting subject for fall while painting our past spring on Prince Edward Island.

Charlottetown PEI Harbour 24 x 30 inch oil on wood

There is a memory of cold, stiff fingers working a brush over a surface in the early spring morning air as I stand at the edge of the Charlottetown harbour. There is a sense of knowing exactly what is before me. Then, everything dissolves into fragments and reforms - though only slightly differently, the view is of an unknown time that is somehow more familiar than the present. Space and history merge. What is left is a quick glance up Great George Street to the St. Dunstan's Basilica from Confederation Landing in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada.

They have promised me they won't be difficult or wiggle when we climb the ladder to get above the stacks. They nodded in agreement about hanging straight. They have each been assigned a specific wall and are prepared to go to that exact location immediately upon arrival. Time will be of the essences. We will have no more than 60 minutes to get them from car to wall before the library opens. Now, it is up to the ferry god mother to get us across the inside passage on schedule on the early boat. And the alarm clock. For Jiminy Cricket! - Don't sleep through the alarm!!!
Wish us luck!
