The White Fence

Broad sunshine created an eye-catching display of deep blue shadows on this historic fence.


Photoshop (actually old school Paint Shop Pro) made it a bit more interesting…




Images From Canada Day

We spent two lovely days at Fort Dunvegan Historical Site on the Peace River, Alberta.  We roasted bannock, toured historic buildings, listened to the Grande Prairie and District Pipes and Drums, played old fashioned carnival games and had rides on horse drawn carts.  Happy (belated) Canada Day!

Lodge Gardens Revisited

These deserved a better picture so you can see the detail.


The day we painted these was one of the rare occasions when the Pleasant View Painters used a photograph to paint from.  The photo is one of mine from last August, taken from the deck of the ice cream and mini golf store at Dunvegan Gardens on the Peace River.  A beautiful spot, but you can see that the ladies don’t worry about making exact copies of what they see in a photo.  Creativity always takes over and we are sure of unique scenes.Picture 075.jpg
