it is as much a part of painting as of music."

I recently got a scanner and was able to scan some thirty year old negs and I found some treasures. Pics that had been lost or never developed. Among them were some fabulous farm houses. Your painting is similar to some of my photos (in content).

It was a great era for buildings. This farm is a very special place.
A must visit when on Saltspring.


I would imagine we might be seeing some of those old photo's reincarnated as watercolour paintings eh Ron?
