    Beautiful images Chris. The Canoe Moonscape remind me of a Roy Vickers painting.

    The ‘pilings’ and the blue flax are equally so very inspiring in such different ways. I couldn’t put one before the other! They both share a complete ‘calmness’.

    Beautiful, inspiring and profound, as always, Chris! I enjoy your writing as much as I enjoy your images – and that’s saying a lot! Makes me want to go back to Tallheo with you guys for a second go-round. Maybe next year…

    Sensing the continuous snow blanket outdoors, I gaze from my large basement windows in my downtown senior apt here in Vernon.
    WHIMSICAL! I was happily moved to apply that word as the best way to describe your creativity. I never thot pilings could yield such fanciful beauty.
    My task today is to gather all the cards I made that represent the photos I have taken of my paintings. Haunting me is my grief at having lost my Canon Rebel last week. Do I report the loss to police ? What will my tenant’s insurance yield? A very good friend, the young man who works the London Drugs electronics counter has offered to let me try out an older Canon he no longer uses. Life has been too much challenge these last few years! At 76 I as still tutoring Gr.2/Art teacher have dodged illness. I have as much company as I can share with my art creation. I hope my subscription to Courtney Milne is successful.
    Thanks for publishing such enchanting images!
