My Boat Ride, Painted

Last week I flooded you with photos of the marshes & the river my parents live by. I found the scenery enchanting. But that's just me...... so I was more than thrilled when an artist, my friend Deana of BELLACOSAART, asked permission to use my photos as inspiration for a piece!!! Of course I said yes - I couldn't wait to see! Needless to say, I was not disappointed:
How amazing is that?!?!!

Here's the side by side comparison:
So awesome! I love the impressionistic feel & muted gray tones. Great job Deana, thank you so much for the honour!

thanks so much for featuring, it was very fun to do. Thanks for the inspiration, it was fun to take a photo that someone has emotional attachment to and paint. I imagined the special time of you and your dad sitting there together in the early morning. I should try to finish it up today.
