When we moved to Kamloops from Vancouver, we weren’t really prepared for the heat.  Being a coastal city, Vancouver rarely sees temperatures over the high 20’s.  Kamloops on the other hand, is in the South West Interior and is arid and hot — very hot.  Summer temperatures can crest 45C, which is hot for Canada.

There’s sagebrush and Ponderosa Pines and cacti and lots of barren, weather-worn rock.  The painting below was done in a location called Silt Bluffs which are full of character and stand above  the North Thompson River.  This scene is only about ten minutes away from downtown.

    I can see spirits dancing in the center of the piece and I can feel the warmth.

    Very nice, I love the way you have used the warm/hot colours.

    It gets hot here in the part of Australia that I live in as well, which is classed as the tropics.
