Saunders Fine Arts POTD - Sunrise on Frederick, Maryland

#TakeMeBackTuesday to a vivid sunrise in June 2016 on the Monocacy National Battlefield in Frederick, Maryland, where Patrick Saunders Fine Arts was painting for Easels in Frederick.

Frederick is up there with Bisbee, Arizona on our favorite American towns list.

Saunders Fine Arts POTD - Goldent Gate Bridge in Fog, San Francisco Bay, San Francisco, California

Normally when you can't see well in San Francisco, it's because of the beautiful effects of fog.

We loved our time living in this gorgeous city, and it hurts to see what the sky looks like there right now.

Saunders Fine Arts POTD - Templo del Dios del Viento, Tulum México Ruinas Mayas, Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico

#TakeMeBackTuesday to Templo del Dios del Viento at the Tulum México Ruinas Mayas in Quintana Roo, Mexico.

 
We spent the 2012/2013 winter holidays in a cottage on the beach of Tankah Bay, not far from these ruins. Our favorite town on this trip was Valladolid. Looking forward to exploring other parts of Mexico again someday.

Petit Palais Musée des Beaux-arts de la Ville de Paris

#TakeMeBackTuesday to the Petit Palais Musée des Beaux-arts de la Ville de Paris

 

I was more drawn to the art of the architecture even than to the paintings inside. This is a view of the central dome of the museum from its beautiful outdoor courtyard and garden. It has a ship sculpture (Emile Peynot?) that represents the coat of arms of Paris, and amazing round stained glass windows by Louis-Charles-Marie Champigneulle.

There is so much to see and appreciate just in this courtyard, let alone the rest of the building by Charles Girault. Definitely a wonderful place to pause and take in art and architectural history. - Kimberly

Saunders Fine Arts POTD - The Baked Potato in California

For #ThrowbackThursday, our first Airstream, a Bambi, on the road near the Chandelier Tree in Leggett, California.

 

This photo from the fall of 2016 is out of focus, but I kept it because I really liked it anyway. It's out of focus because I was taking pictures while driving, which I shouldn't do, or admit to, because it's dangerous, but our 'Baked Potato' looked so good on the road that sometimes I just couldn't help myself. Traveling the West Coast with our Bambi is an experience we'll never forget, and that we can't wait to do again with our Flying Cloud. - Kimberly
