Title: Three Valley Lake, Three Valley Gap, BC, Canada, iPad painting by M. Bijman (digital painting, 21 x 28 inches)


Driving towards Revelstoke, BC, you can see Three Valley Gap on the other side of this lake, which is frozen solid and blue in Winter. There is a “ghost” hotel on the other side, which, off-season, looks pretty desolate. It has vestiges of former glory – huge wings, turrets, balconies and a view to die for. But in winter, all you can see are the tiny spots of cars’ headlights passing by in the mist, fog and sleet, and the trains hooting as they go along the track by the side of the lake. The massive cliffs of with forests right down to the water dominate everything. The sky stays a deep, doleful grey. The painting took forever to make, because of all the trees that had to be put in one by one. But I like the end effect. Just for the heck of it, I turned it into a Christmas card. See?
