Along my travels

on 27 June 2013

Dear All,

 

Greetings from Vancouver Island! My husband and I have been visiting family in Canada for the last two weeks here in B.C. When I was preparing for the trip I was reminding myself "remember to take pictures of everything...be like the Japanese!!" And that is what I´ve done. So far I have taken over 1000 pictures. This is all because of the beutiful things I´ve seen along the way.

Last weekend we went camping to Gabriola Island. We spent two nights there, driving around the island, taking long walks and meeting local people.

Gabriola Island becomes alive during the summer with all the visitors and summer residents coming to enjoy the nature and fresh air.
I knew that all these Islands are full of artists but meeting them personally was  still a wonderful experience. I met photographers, painters, chocolatiers, wood carvers, metal workers all doing what they do and enjoying it. This to me is very inspiring and helps to keep making my art as I do.

This week Campbell River city has a wood carving competition with about 15 different artist competing for a title. Last years winner carved a spider, so lets see what this years winner will present! I saw them working on their pieces yesterday, the sawdust and motorsaw exhaust in the air was not covering the inspiration and creativity that any passer by stopped to admire. I have to say "tsai-yo" to all of them! (chinese for: keep up the good work)

I have had a opportunity this week to meet some of the rare local animals. On the way back from Gabriola Island we saw Killer Whales passing through our path. Everyone on that ferry came out of their cars and took pictures. I couldn´t bother for photos, this was the first time I was able to see these inscredible animals in their own enviroment.

The next morning I was looking out from our window and wondering about a man wolking to the beach with his dog and a bucket. He dumpped the inside of the bucket on the beach. In few seconds the seagulls were excited and totally going for the fish carcasses. In a short while we saw more and more birds heading that way, with bald head eagles and even a golden eagle bothered himself to show up for a easy treat.

I ran out with my camera, and forgot to thank that wonderful dog-walker for the great photo opportunity hea had given me.

I got the best pictures ever, I was able to stan just few meters away from such rare birds. I posted the best of these photos here:

I was able to go to visit a farm earlier, met this beautiful calf on the picture. I hope this picture will give you a same smile as I had taking pictures of him!

 

Have a great day!

 

Maria

 

 

Reasently I have been making a serie of paintings of this girl in a light pink dress. Last summer I was watching a event taking place at the river going by our cabin in Finland. The event was just crazy, but this girl who was playing by the river caught my attention. She was dressed in a white dress looking like somebody from the past. I took out my camera and took about 15 pictures of this little girl. Now I have finished 3 paintings of her, changing few details. I hope one day I will see her again and I can tell her and her parents what a great inspiration she has been for my paintings. This painting is shape of 50x50cm, so this photo of the painting doesnt cover the corners of it. I will post a picture showing the whole painting as soon as I figure out how to use photo cropping. Size: 50x50cm. 3000RMB, 350 euro. NOTICE: this photo is not thw whole painting. If you are interested to purchase this painting, contact me for the full picture. (it is complicated size to take a picture of without showing the wall as well)

A little about me

 Artist painter Maria Melenchuk I was born in Finland, in the city of Lappeenranta - city full of lakes and forrests. Growing up I spent most of my time going between home and seeing uncles and auntie, grandmother and great auntie. This is how I learned to drink coffee at a very early age - I really miss the way my great auntie made a cup of "kohvi"!!.Read more About me
