Driving along the Dempster is an incredible experience. We enjoyed the fantastic colourful sea of wild flowers, and constant daylight in July. Wish we could have seen the magnificent colours of autumn, illustrated in your painting.
Oh, the colors in this painting are absolutely stunning. I’m not much of an artist but this makes me want to break out my watercolor pencils and give it a whirl! Have you ever checked out a site called Etsy? I think it’s a site where artists and crafters sell their wares.
Friar, it’s Magnifique. The extent of my French. I’m too tired to say anything intelligent today.
I like the green tones you added to the mountains. It really adds to the color in the foreground.
Now I have to go hand the computer over to my daughter so she can play Disney games. Oh, she’s an artist too. I think I will have her guest blog at my site. She got all excited when I said I was going to put her picture on the computer. E
What a lovely painting! It reminds me of the area on the New York/Vermont border where my parents live. Cool colors and fiery vegetation at the same time. Wow, I’m homesick for their home and homesick for a season all at once. Thanks for posting it!
If I had to pick a State to live in, Upstate New York or Vermont would rank right up there. It’s a 6-7 hour drive from Splat Creek but I try to get down there once or twice a year. I love hiking in the Adirondacks and there is some great skiing. Actually, I just spent Easter weekend at Sugarbush and Mad River Glen!
Bring Brett and we’ll all have coffee sometime. My parents are in Hampton, on the border with little Poultney, VT. (About six hours from me.) It’s lovely there. They own a little motel. I spend about half the summer up with them. Long drive for coffee, though… I’ll have to make muffins.
So all you have to do is find a single widgeter. If it were that simple, Brett would have hooked you up already. Married guys love to spread the… joy… of marriage to their friends, so you can have more to talk about at the pub.
If I were a guy and I got to marry you, I’d take instant great-grandpa. I suspect instant grandpa is scarier when ladies are fishing with less gorgeous bait. 🙂
Problem with living in Splat Creek is that it’s such a small town. If you start dating someone, you better marry them! Otherwise, when you break up, then the WHOLE TOWN will eventually know who-did-what and who-said-what.
As for single widgeters…there are a few. A rare few. Some women tried to set me up with one…once. And (sorry to say), they might as well have set me up with a dude. But that’s for another story. 🙂
