The great cathedrals of Europe lead our eyes heavenward and help us to contemplate wonders beyond our day-to-day lives. Sometimes a piece of aging rural infrastructure can do the same thing.
Along the Saint John River there was a little white church that had been a milestone on family trips. It provided a sign that we would soon be home. One day when I driving by the church, I noticed that it had suffered through a fire. I pulled over and took a few pictures. One of those photos became the basis for today’s image, “Tongues of Fire”.
Today’s watercolour is from a few years ago. It was done around this time of year. You can see some melting muddy snow around the bottom of the archway.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Preserved in today’s watercolour painting is a picture of a house. It’s a building of great significance to me. It’s where I grew up, and it will always hold a special place in my memory.
For a kid from rural New Brunswick it was a dream come true to travel to Rome. Today’s watercolour ” A Street in Rome”, comes from the first trip we made with students to visit that glorious city.
In today’s watercolour “Storehouse” I was drawn to the repetition of the rectangles at the front of this apple warehouse.
