Location of Old Fort Langley
My plan to capture the morning sun breaking through the far clouds was a good idea as everything changed to be a dull overcast by the time I finished this piece. I tried to capture the mood of the day on the river but the event was fun with lots of activities and family events. Of course I missed most of the activity as I spent all of my time painting a bit off the beaten path.
It was hard to pick a location to paint as there were so many great things all very close at hand and these old apple trees dotted along the path that winds through the area with heritage farms and barns. A couple of beautiful horses were also playing in the pasture as we scouted around. Being my first time on this event Michael King walked me around a bit to see the spots he had painted in before.
