Welcome back to Victoria BC!

TC and the Gang in Front of "Spring Glory" - 9x12 - Oil on Canvas

Well, it was a happy reunion when Tc and gang arrived back in Victoria, BC! They had visited a few years ago and we had had a blast in my studio reading books and chatting about travel. My name is Marcela Strasdas, I love to paint local scenes, our gorgeous BC coastline and the many flowers and gardens we have in this city. My medium is primarily oil at present.  My special guests came to Victoria at at the tail end of cherry blossom season and as I had painted a few of them, they really enjoyed parading around in front of my paintings. They said they felt like they were walking around the neighbourhood! 
At the time, I was doing a one-month-long artist residency at the Coast Hotel in downtown Victoria so I brought them with me with the idea of painting them while there but unfortunately, I never got to it. They did enjoy meeting people from all over the world and pose for photos in front of my paintings!

They were surprised to see I had moved and didn't live next to the beautiful forest they had seen before behind my house so of course, they explored the house and the yard and told me all about their travels in the last couple of years. Wow, these chicks get around!!

Blah-blah-blah-blah while I make dinner!

As if they didn't travel enough I took them with me to a Plein-Air Paint out in the interior of BC which I will share int he next post! Thanks for reading!!
