Time to Rest.


One place that I just love to visit is the studio of Gayle Fulwyler Smith, a watercolor artist in Dixon. Her home is surrounded by a large apple orchard and you have to walk on a road in the orchard to reach her home. This old trailer that was probably used at harvest time. Wish I could have caught a shot of it when it was full of apples.

Watercolor artists are so rare now, any chance to see some of her work?

Looks like a peaceful and wonderful place, I love those trees with Autumn colours and your picture is really beautiful!Very well captured!
No doubt those artists have great inspiration in this awesome scenery!

I always thought it would be neat to have an apple orchard. Of course I wouldn't know what to do with all the apples, but they sure look neat! :)

It looks like that wagon has gone many, many miles!
Happy Sunday, dandy Randy!

JM said...

It still looks great when it's empty, because the wood looks old.

Great shot! Looks like a perfect subject for a painting.

Wow! An apple orchard!
I wish I could live there - then I can press my own apple juice every morning! :)

I like to imagine that orchard was full of flowers.

This is a great photo, well-composed. I think that it would look like a slice of history in black and white. That old wagon has probably carried many apples in its day!
