Near and far…the Cotswold countryside and the Weekly Photo Challenge from WordPress

September 7, 2012

There’s something magical about the English countryside. One sees it in old master’s paintings in museums, on the covers of chocolate boxes and fancy vacation brochures, but I can tell you that it really is that bucolic in places. Out of the cities and towns, between the villages, the only things which have changed from centuries ago are the farm vehicles and the power lines. (Both of which can be judiciously avoided or Photoshopped out) When I get back to Vancouver, I have it in mind to paint a few large canvases of this Englishness.

This is how it goes...
September and a whole new world

    I’ve seen sheep up close and I know they’re not truly fuzzy-wuzzy, but these ones look positively pettable.
