Neither Rain nor Sleet

8x8 Oil on Canvas Sold
Tim Hortons is a "famous" Canadian coffee place. Probably one in five Canadians can be seen with a Tim's cup in hand at any given time. On a rainy day, our local Tims is a  great place to park and watch the vehicles at the drive through and  the people running for their coffee fix. And there's always great reflections.

I am pleased to say that I have joined a painting group called "Daily Painter Originals". This is a very talented, personable, creative group of artists, and I am proud to be part of this "on line gallery."

If anyone is wondering where Myra has been, she has been in the Hammer with me at Tims, drinking coffee and eating timbits. This coffee painting is dedicated to Myra who is now back on line. Visit her blog here for some light hearted fun, some great art, and lots of stuff about coffee.
Happy Canada Day!

Beautiful as always. I just love your Timmy's paintings- perhaps because they are such a part of life here. You go by them every day in all weather...Your winter one was just gorgeous. And yes - welcome!

You are right Catherine, Tim Hortons says 'Canada Day' in so many ways.
Great painting.
Really happy to have you on board daily painter originals.

Thanks for all of your comments, everyone.
Tammy, I was joking about Myra. If she were to come to Canada, I would be phoning you and Kim and everyone else within traveling distance. (I'm sure you knew that :)

I love your reflections and the texture of the support adds to the feeling of rain. I'm always in awe of people able to paint night scenes.
I just spend a few days in your lovely country for the first time (and got to celebrate Canada Day). I only got to see Vancouver and Victoria BC but hope to see more of Canada in the near future.
