FRIDAY FRIENDS

Recently Mom and Ms. Lynne, mom of Dip, Bridge and
were emailing about a painting from a scene in Tuscany.
Mom was telling Ms. Lynne that we live in the 
Piedmont (which means foothills) of North Carolina and that an Italian grad student told mom that topographically the Yadkin Valley NC was very similar to Tuscany


One thing lead to another mom sent Ms. Lynne this picture taken in Yadkin Valley, the wine country of the Piedmont section of  NC.
Ms. Lynne had no idea we made wine in NC.  She absolutely
loved mom's photo.    She told mom she needed practice
with green watercolors... she asked if she could paint mom's photo


Mom was thrilled with the results...

Ms. Lynne we think practice makes purrfect and we thank
you for this beautiful watercolor of one of Mom's 
favorite places in our beautiful State of North Carolina.
Hugs Madi and Mom

  15. WOW! The painting--and the original photo--are gorgeous. We had no idea that there were wine makers in NC either. (But then, you probably don't know that there are wineries in abundance in southern Ontario! LOL.)

    Have a super weekend!
