Quick post before classes

Autumn in the Islands 1 and 2 - oil on wood
Good morning! Cup of tea by my side, thought I'd while away the time before my class starts this morning with a little blog update. Yesterday I got cracking and did the prep needed for today, (it's all about atmospheric perspective today)so it feels relaxing to not be rushing around this morning. 
Weren't we just blessed with fantastic weather for our Canadian Thanksgiving weekend!?  We spent nearly the whole time out of doors, and gosh it was lovely! I was lucky this year, only did some veggies and bought the bird, but Jeff cooked the turkey in his outdoor deep fryer this was delish! and quite the event too. 
Winter Cabins 1 and 2 - oil on wood
I didn't get much time to work on my Halifax harbour painting, though I did get a little...but not ready just yet to post thought I'd show you some more mini blocks which I've been doing to prepare stock for November shows.

My dad's partner Diana passed away, and the funeral is this weekend.  Sad that he will not have her in his life anymore for company, but she is in a better place.  She was not well for the last number of months.
