The picture of winter outside my window put me in mind of a fox that 
had crossed my path not too long ago.

Nova Scotia Landscape Painting

One of the beautiful things about Nova Scotia is its small size.

The quality of size captured by the old saying "Good things come in small packages.", is certainly true in this case. The variety of forms ranging from the ocean to mountains is all contained on this beautiful peninsula. The peninsula is joined to the mainland by the Tantarmar Marshes and juts out into the North Atlantic Ocean giving a unique maritime quality to the air.

All this variety is good for landscape painting. Constant change provides subjects with unique qualities of light varying from day to day and sometimes within hours or minutes. 

There is an expression here, "If you don't like the weather at the front door, go out the back.
