Just a sunny landscape

No more, no less, as Shakespeare said... Just a sunny, vacation like Québec landscape, somewhere near Baie St. Paul (je crois)... In a painter's cuisine this would equivalate to a "soufflé", quelque chose d'aerien, de light, just a quick watercolor to match a beautiful summer day and a sunny disposition. Since outside the winter winds are hauling, as Sting said, it seemed appropriate to encourage myself a bit with some sunny summer images...The rich québecois are now flying off to Miami or to Caraibes, to Cuba... The ones not so rich brace themselves and "monte le chauffage"... And it seems, the meteorologist predict, that it will be one of the coldest winter in Canada in the last 15 years... so much for global warming...

Very nice, Danu. I'm glad the disposition is sunny too. Keep the happy pictures coming.

I simply love the way you paint boats, Danu, and the landscapes in which they are floating. This one has again that wonderful fresness of the Gaspesle (you think) one...
I might be wrong, but I strongly feel your love for nature in these paintings... I mean, pure love, without any doubt, without bas experiences and deceptions. I deeply enjoy to see what you love...

I'll try to do just that, swallows. Even if I'll perish on the task...hi.hi...

Comming from you, miki, it's a great compliment...and you are not wrong, I love nature and painting landscapes on the spot. But mostly, I have to do it after photos (that's why I'm sometimes unsure of the place). Maybe someday, when I'll can, I'll paint also in Italy, Spain and the south of France...

Dane, ti-au iesit f. senine tablourile in vara asta... Nu stiam ca esti meteorosensibil. Dar stiam cit esti de sensibil, si asta e cel mai important;

Or fi iesit senine, Ovidiu, dar n-am vandut mai nimic... si-s foarte sensibil (si) la chestia asta, de nevoie...

Lovely. I like the way you're posting sunny, bright paintings to counteract the gloomy gray weather.

se stie prea bine ca "banii n-aduc fericirea"... dar numarul lor e tulburator de important
