9 x 12 inch acrylic "Malahat Evening"

I finished this one a while ago and forgot to post it. This is from the top of Malahat mountain where my daughter works at the Aerie Resort. It is an absolutely gorgeous place with breathtaking views. I did this one as a little experiment on canvas paper with very watery acrylic paint, almost like watercolor. I like the colors and the way it turned out.

Revisited painting "Silent Watcher"

I have played around with this painting after some excellent suggestions from the good folks at It was suggested that hump of the mountain and the tree were too in line with each other and would look more balanced by putting in some more hills in the background. I tried to make them look further off in the distance by fading the color. I think this looks better now.
