:wave: Hi again everyone!
I just got a shipment of new paint from home for my birthday so I painted this one quickly(2 hours) to check them out. Ya like?:)

This is beautifully done! Love your colors and detail.

09-06-2007, 11:57 PM
Wow, so much detail in such a short time!

09-06-2007, 11:59 PM
Damn, you go all out when you camp.

Nice painting, too.

I love it! We're a camping family and our set up looks almost just like this! Again, your knack for achitectural drawing comes in handy. :)

I like it a lot! More luxurious than our campervan with awning that we had many years ago.

This is terrific!! It looks very comfortable. What size is the painting? I can't believe you did all that in two hours. Amazing job!

What are your paints? Belated birthday greetings too! when was it? Hope you had a happy day:)

Aahh! Someone else who likes camping as much as I do - I suspect you include more comforts than I do - a nice warm inviting image!

definately some great colors! your somewhere between my brother and I when it comes to camping, he says its a tent and a blanket, I used to say its the Hilton but since I can now bring my kingsize bed, air conditioning and satellite tv with me, I say RVing is the way 2 go:lol:

Tony, this is super. I enjoyed every bit of it and like the unusualness of the subject too. :)

PS -happy birthday too!

I want to go camping with you, you live it up when you go. It is great. It is hard to believe you did it in two hours. I love the colors. Jan

Like the colors Tony. Amazing for only a couple of hours. We camp in a fifth wheel, but I wouldn't mind caming in this set up. Great job!:thumbsup:

Wonderfully inviting!

09-07-2007, 10:46 AM
Hmmmm... wondering about your other camping furnishings? Recliner, TV set, etc.?

Now, if we had a bed like that when we went tenting, I might have liked it, lol.

This is a very cheerful picture, makes me feel that cool morning air.

Great painting. Happy Birthday...good gift.

Last time I went camping, after camping was a distant memory, I obtained an inflated St. Pauli Girl full sized advertisement from the local liquor store and used it as my barrier under the sleeping bag. Since it was rounded, I slipped off now and then during the night...even after deflating a bit. (My kids have all the bells and whistles, but I figured my outing was just for a weekend and I could rough it...no need to borrow the really good stuff.) Would have preferred this painted outfit.

Isn't it nice to receive art usable gifts, instead of another tie?...and you use them well.

What an unusual choice of subjects! It must have been a challenge to get all the perspective and scale to work together this well. It pleaseth thine eyes.

Hi Gail! When I still lived in B.C. I had a great 5th wheel as well.It sure is comfortable but it isn't really camping is it?
Hey Paula! Useful gifts are the best!! I am lucky as most folks do buy me art supplies now.It is fun to see some of the unusual stuff they come up with!!
