Another Cool Cracker - The Comox Glacier
I have always admired Charlene's paintings of mountains, glaciers and lakes. I've never been to Canada but have visited the European Alps many times. Charlene's views always transport me back to that landscape. Bitter cold wind off the glaciers, even when the day is hot, and the sharp pungent tang of pine resin. Glorious! I was so delighted therefore when this card arrived in the post! (Not so delighted with the postmen though, who'd managed to print an orange serial bar top and bottom...... grrrr. Thank goodness it's relatively faint!).
This is a view of the Comox Glacier near Mt Washington. Charlene tells me they had big snow falls here late into the season and there was still a lot around at the end of May. I love the colour and shapes Charlene achieves both within the mountain and the fir trees. It has a lovely rhythm.
London today is overcast and windy. I'd far rather be looking at this view for real. Thank you Charlene, I'll look at your card and just pretend I'm there instead!
