My name is Sharlene Stushnov-Lee and I am an artist living in Victoria, BC. I first met TC and "the gang" a few years ago when they came to visit my good friend Marcela Strasdas, here in Victoria. It sounded like they had a very good time together and I always thought that I would like to have them come and visit me. But alas, life got in the way.
So you can imagine how surprised and delighted I was to find that they were making a return visit and would be joining us on our annual painting trip this year.
Every year Marcela, Deborah (another friend) and I go on a painting road trip and this year was no exception. We spent time in Kelowna, Ashcroft and Big Bar Lake.
|"Afternoon Wine" - The Gang at Big Bar Lake - Watercolour|
One afternoon while we were at Big Bar Lake, I had the opportunity to spend some time with Senor Azul, Chicken and Hen and . . . how did that wine box get in there? Yes, our visit may also have involved a little bit of afternoon wine.
|"Visiting Grandma Duck" - Acrylic on Canvas - 8"x8"|
When we returned to Victoria, Senor Azul and The Gang finally came over to my house to meet Grandma Duck. Grandma Duck has been around for a long time and was happy for some company. Unfortunately, TC and friends couldn't stay long as they had already made arrangements to visit Saltspring Island, so after a short visit they packed up (or I should say were packed up) and off they went.
Hmm . . . .perhaps another road trip next year?
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
