Nature is painting for us, day after day, pictures of infinite beauty, if only we have the eyes to see them.
John Ruskin 1819-1900


Note:  for those of you who don't know where I live.  We have an acreage on the Magundy River which runs out of the Pelly Mountains off the South Canol and meanders along for many miles  and makes its way to Little Salmon Lake.  Our house is built 60 metres from the Magundy River on 8 acres of land in the forest. Our lane is about a km long and is off the Robert Campbell Highway about 30 Km from Faro. I have often said that I could spend rest of my life painting around where I live and never run out of inspiration
