Thumbs up

Thank you for your kind comments. The painting was done quite a while back (before I became a full time carer for my mother). I am now back at my flat but lack confidence and motive to open my paintbox again....

That's a nice, peaceful-feeling painting creative. So, more please? What medium did you use? Kinda looks like watercolors, but it's hard to tell on a monitor.

Yes they are watercolours (from tubes, since it's a large painting). I like vivid colours (as you can tell) so am a bit "heavy handed" on the pigments.

We took that cruise in 2008 PF and it's beautiful. It's one of our trip stories.

Nice pics, creative! Hoping to see more!

Kayelle, I enjoyed your photos and story. The Columbia River Gorge IS a beautiful place, isn't it? The last time I was there was in 2001, some friends and I sat on a blanket on a grassy hillside overlooking the Gorge, and watched a Santana concert. Lots of fun and beautiful scenery.

Had such a great time yesterday up at my daughter and SIL's cabin up in Kennedy Meadows. It's only an hour's drive from here, but high up in the Sierras, at 7000'. It was so nice to leave the heat of the valley here behind us and play around in the mountains. The cabin is on 500 acres of private property so there was not another soul in sight, except for the critters. LOL. It was awesome.

My little fishermen. They were using their little Spiderman fishing poles, and they all caught one!


Their lake.

Some of the other residents.
