February - Original Photograph from Jan - Nova Scotia Harbour - This picture is from our quarantine-vacation in Nova Scotia over Christmas 2020, the view from our AirBnb. I chose it as it offers so many different options to work with. I hope you enjoy it!
March - Original Photograph from Suz - Hollyhocks - Eons ago, I would book one week of my holidays to take a watercolour painting class near Thornbury, Ontario with the Blue Mountain School of Landscape Painters. Each day, we would travel to private homes in the area to choose sites for our paintings. This is one such location. I like all the different textures, the colour contrasts, and the shadows..
April - Original Photograph from Norah -Chinese Garden Moon Gate - This was taken in the city of Vancouver BC, in ChinaTown. There you will find Dr. Sun Yat-Sen traditional Chinese Garden. It is one of the nicest gardens I have ever been in. You will find it very peaceful and quiet even though it is one of the busiest parts of the city. This is a Moon Gate and it is set so that when the moon is just off the horizon: the gate frames it.
