Another painting missing from 1992

Our Christmas letter in 1992 mentioned a stay on Galiano Island with our daughter and son-in-law and their son our first grandchild who was not quite a year old at the time. There were no photos or paintings of Galiano in the letter, so I’m going to add this view from Bluffs Park on Galiano of a ferry exiting Active Pass and heading toward Victoria.  

BC Ferries give the western tip of Mayne Island a wide berth because sea lions and orcas frequently gather at this point. I’ve included a few in the painting, though we did not actually see any orcas or sea lions when we hiked along the bluffs back in 1992.
