to brighten a dull day

outside of the Joy Laking Gallery

It's a gloomy day here...so dark that we need the lights on...with the sounds of thunder outside. 

This photo was captured in July, outside the Joy Laking Gallery in Portaupique, Nova Scotia. Some day I'd love to own one of Joy's paintings...my favourites include her watercolours of chairs on porches, flowers in the windows, laundry blowing on the line....

That one photo says a lot, doesn't it? I bet you could use some painterly techniques in photo shop and do something really wonderful with it (not that it isn't already, because it is). Sort of Monet-like, maybe. Love it.

Such a beauty of a spot! I love gloomy days. We just do not get enough of them here, to my mind, at least.
