I confess, I have scenic envy. Although I have seen spectacular scenery on this journey—the desert and the Western USA coastline are all beautiful—Vancouver Island tops the chart when it comes to great painting spots.

Vancouver Island offers so much to a painter  – busy harbors, mountain views of both Canada and the USA, great architecture, luscious gardens, First Nation lore, deep blue lakes, rushing rivers, sandy beaches, and rocky coastlines.

Did I mention that Ohio has lots of flat farm land? The Al Frescoes are very fortunate to have such a spectacular and diverse island to paint all the time!

  1. Dear Suzi,
    I just received an email about your approaching trip to Juneau, Alaska. I will happily forward it to our group of local painters, called Plein Rein Painters. Juneau is a rain forest so we happily paint, rain and shine. Hoping that your time here will be sunny, but it will certainly be beautiful. We meet at 9 a.m. at the downtown Foodland grocery store to plan an appropriate spot for the morning. I’m sure you’ll get lots of advice from the group for additional locations. Looking forward to meeting and painting with you in June. Safe travels. What a great way to see this beautiful land. Enjoying the blog. I’ve just bookmarked it! Best wishes, Cristine
