Today’s piece shows a continuation in working on images inspired by the west coast of Canada. This ink on paper piece depicts the trees that cling to the rocky outcrop at the beach on Bridges Road (Pender Island, British Columbia, Canada).

The inspiration was a colorless winter day, one of those days when you reach the beach and wonder “Do I even want to go down to the water’s edge?” But you do, and you see a scene so different from those of bright blue skies, sunshine and sandcastles.

I’ve been revisiting working with ink recently. It seems to be a nice medium to work with until I gather the courage (and a few dead quiet hours) to finish the latest panel I am painting. I didn’t really think about my choice of ink colors until my husband asked me “What made you choose blue?” Thinking about it, it was probably because blue is cold and the day was cold.

Perhaps I will try a few more blue and black ink images in the next few days. A recent snowfall has left me with a stash of images on my camera that are just made for that cold blue look.
