Victoria from Christmas Hill

This was a commissioned work, but while I was painting it, I made it my own. The reference was a composite photo made from several shots I took looking Southward from Christmas Hill. It includes the Olympic Mountains, the Salish Sea, our city, Swan Lake, a garry oak tree, and the kind of large rocks and grass that are so emblematic of the terrain here.

I have made three cities my home over the years, but I’ve lived in Victoria the longest. This is not  the town where I am from, but it is for our kids, and it sure feels like home to me.
