Artist notes: Plein air mornings at Reef Bay for sunrise are the best! The sun is rising way off on the right in the south right now and so the light bounces right across the Strait of Georgia. Plus, it is not so early to catch it. I was there shortly after 7:00 and all set up to paint by 7:20 am…. Sunrise was at 7:29 am PDT. This was taken at 7:55 am. A painter has to be fast if they want to render a plein air sunrise. It was a bit nippy for standing around painting with a slight breeze and only 4 degrees Celsius so we made it quick.

The shores are littered with wood debris from the resent rain, mudslides and severe flooding following an atmospheric river weather event. Sometimes whole trees are floating in the water. However, as sad as it is, the sun came up just the same as always.
