In this animation TP tries to impress his new found love through music, adventure, and the search for a rainbow.

Watch for TP's re-creation of a romantic scene from "Out of Africa" towards the end.

Also watch for what might be our best ever sighting of Okanagan Lake's legendary Ogopogo. The paddlewheeler SS Sicamous actually plied the Lake from 1914 to 1937.

The thread showing my progress and discussions during production is here ... http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1318871

I hope you enjoy "Dreams and Rainbows" ... :)

Oh, my, look at those hips gyrate!

Poor little TP...so many questions to ask...will he ever find what he is looking for...will anyone ever recognize his talents...should he join AA?

This is wonderful, and your painting of the waterfall is masterful! Brian, my man, you are on quite a journey! :clap: :clap:

Wonderful, Brian! For me, it is the trip through the Okanagan valley that I like best....super watercolour paintings, so full of light, and of course Ogopogo to complete it! Thanks!

Almost missed this....it all works, but that scene with the paddle wheeler was "over the top". Must have been challenging to say the least.

Thank you to all of you who have commented! :wave: Your kind comments are much appreciated and help guide me on to the next one.

Speaking of next one ...... I have two in the works. One is in progress already while the other is simmering on the back burner. The added feature will be trying my hand at original music composition to complement two of my paintings. That part was finished yesterday after wrestling with it for a week or so. I'm no John Barry or Beethoven that's for sure ... but I'm having fun trying. I have a new appreciation and admiration for composers. :D

The good weather has finally arrived so I guess that will slow production. It was too easy spending all those rainy days (weeks?) in front of the computer.
