Long long ago my friend asked me to be a second driver on a trip to the coast to deliver another friend to school. It was September on an island just off Vancouver Island, and it was more beautiful than usual because time was so short. One evening we had a few moments to enjoy the sunset light on an isolated point at the end of a hilly, winding road. It was a highlight of the trip, right next to swimming with a friendly sea lion off the dock at the school.
I didn’t paint this on site, but the memory was strong enough 🙂
