Helliwell Sky

"Helliwell Sky", 6" x 12", 1.5 inch profile, oil on panel.
This viewpoint from Helliwell looking out to Lasquiti is a very familiar and loved place.  I find it interesting having walk this walk so often to notice the optical illusion that some things, ie distant islands, seem closer or farther depending on the light, weather who knows what?  It is one of the advantages of painting the same thing over and over..noticing subleties.
