Baie Verte

Well, here I am back in the Canadian Maritimes again - this time in New Brunswick, where we have our family summer home. We often go to Amherst, Nova Scotia, to go shopping, and the back road there takes us through the town of Baie Verte. The town is at the end of the bay named Baie Verte, the same bay our farm is on. But the town of Baie Verte has lots of fascinating inlets and marshes, and when the tide is low you can see up to a dozen Great Blue Herons in the water, fishing.

It's a gorgeous spot and I've long wanted to paint it. Finally, today, I did, using a reference photo that I took many years ago in my pre-digital days, but Baie Verte still looks the same.
