After 3 years, I can finally say this painting is finished. I've been working on it off and on, and sometimes months without even dabbing any paint on its canvas. It started when I found this old window frame in the shed, soon to be taken to the dump. Picking it up from behind more old junk, I thought it would make a great frame for a painting. So this was the beginning of a new life for this old window frame. Each panels is an individual 8x10 canvas board. With a little paint, it's surprising what can be done to an old piece of junk. The scene is of a view of a lighthouse in Margaree Harbour. Breathtaking sight!

With a bit of research, I managed to find out that this is a Bali duck. It is a little odd to see this duck, with a fluffy crest on the back of his head, trying to fit in with the other ducks. I haven't seen him around today, he might have gone back home after a short visit with his cousins in Lester's pond.

This week we finally got to see some sun after a couple of weeks of miserable fog and rain. I wasn't really complaining, but when the day is bright, sunny and warm, people are out and about in a cheerful and uplifting kind of a way... The community comes to life!
