"Orange" blueberries & Maine art

We just returned home from our 
little vacation to Maine.
There were so many memorable sights
which are all far better in my minds eye
than what came out of my  Kodak
but i still want to share some of them with you!
 we took a day trip to Campobello Island in Canada
and  loved this gorgeous tree!
I got a kick out of 
this Copper Moose Head on a house 
outside of EastPort ME

and this heavy metal woman
was in a parking lot of a business
in EastPort
i think the same artisan who made the moose
created her too don't you?

One of my favorite sights
are the colorful Blueberry Barrens!
After harvest, they change color
into flaming orange and red!
This picture is of a field that is
beginning to turn color

and this field along RT1
is almost there!

As soon as I'm caught up on all the work,
mainly laundry,  I'm going to do some
paintings in acrylic of the fields.

But here is a watercolor i did
after seeing them last year
which just so happens to work for 
Blueberry Field after Harvest

IAC - a pink rose

Cindy, our IA sister loves roses!
so it's no surprise that Cindy selected "Roses"
for our Inspiration Avenue's challenge!

My mother-in-law was the sweetest soul
who had a twinkle in her eye and love in her heart.
So when she passed at the age of 92,
we planted a rose bush to remember her by.
This is a picture of one of "mom's roses"
that I took a few years ago.

for the challenge i played around with the photo

This was a lovely and very enjoyable challenge!
Thank you Cindy! Come join us at
Inspiration Avenue!
And the color of these roses fit perfectly for
31 days of Pink!
