Here’s a stylized and darkened version of another one
of the Banff
postcards I painted at Christmastime. (That particular card was doomed from thestart, as described by Cathy Gatland on Postcards From My Walk.)Besides turning it into a night

with one of the ice sculptures that appeared on the lake for the International IceCarving Competition in January.
Charlene Brown is a Canadian painter who started writing about painting trips during the ten years she and her husband lived in Dubai. The Gulf Weekly began publishing her accounts of painting trips in that part of the Arabian peninsula -- then said they might consider other countries, even such exotic locations as Canada! She had written about painting trips in over twenty countries by the time her husband retired and they returned to Canada to live.
