As we see the colors beginning to alter, and we move toward fall in the Pacific Northwest, I am reminded of the positive aspects of change. On day last fall when the skies cleared, I put all of my plans aside in order to take a drive from my home in Redmond along highway 2 to Leavenworth, Washington. The autumn colors were at their most beautiful. I painted a series of images based on the photographs that I took that day. I don’t think you can ever go wrong taking the time to make stunning visual memories.
“High Cascades” is an interpretation of the journey along the Skykomish River.
You are not traveling for people to see you
Every place you visit is like a surprise package to be opened
Untie the strings with an expectation of high adventure
Visit people and places with reverence and respect for their traditions and way of life
Travel with an open mind,
Leave your prejudices at home
Travel with curiosity
It is not how far you go,
But how deeply you go that mines the gold of experience
Old Spanish Proverb

I remember when you created those paintings. I love them.We are in Austria right now, making family connections with my daughter and family. We leave today for 2 days in Allgaeu and then to Switzerland. Our daughter and family live near Vevey. Had no time for sketching, hope to catch up soon. Check out FB, you will see my photos and postings.HugsHelgaSent from my T-Mobile 4G LTE Device
