Description

Acrylic on canvas, 40" x 40"

I’ve done variations on this scene before, which is what you see when you’re pulling into downtown Vancouver on the seabus. In this one, I decided consciously use more fiery reds and yellows and fewer blues and greens. I wanted the overall effect to be a bouquet of jewel-toned warmth: sapphire, emerald, ruby, and gold.

As much as I love Vancouver, it has more dull days than bright ones. You get a lot of mist and an unrelenting monochromatic sense of gray every day when you live in a coastal rainforest. Gray days in and gray days out.

This tribute says that after all the endless damp gray-gray-GRAY, when you finally get a bright day in Vancouver, it seems really, REALLY bright. When you wake up and see a clearing in the rain and feel the sun, it feels like all the Vitamin D in your body sits up and shouts, Booyah!

Update: A Daily D! Thank you, dA, and thank you to everyone who commented and :+fav:d. This made a tough week much, much better. I sure appreciate all of it. Thank you.
