Sikanni, inspiration

Here are a few inspiration photos from our trip. My grandaughter and I build a Inukshuk, wonder if it will still be there when we go up in Aug??  A neat little butterfly on a rock, rocks, beautiful fire weed and paintbrush on the side of the hi way, it rained and then a glorious double rainbow!  Those are spans leff from the old bridge. It burnt a number of years ago.

We had a fabulous holiday at the Sikanni River, our favorite Place. Took the dogs, they could all run they should. Just a wonderful peaceful time both on the river and watching the river go by while sitting around the campfire. Here are some pictures from our trip. Enjoy the pristine beauty of the great northeastern part of BC wilderness. Heading up river, the canyon, Ginger's first boat ride. The falls, a goat on the ledge, pristine water up river, the camp.

Sikanni Canyon FFFC #46

After being in somewhat of a 'slump' for many months I have finally created a piece. I missed many FFFChallenges and am happy to have achieved this one.
Our challenge was Geology with unexpected colors. I chose a picture of one of our favorite places, the Sikanni River, BC. I have included the original picture. I painted a piece of cloth and then stitched both by hand and by machine. Using colors of Utah or Fire Valley NV, as you can see in the picture not the colors of  our landscape at all.  The Sikanni has always fascinated me, pristine clear water, rocks sideways, rocks up, deep shadows, just a very intriquing place. I hope you have enjoyed this little piece of art from the north, and Happy Canada Day to my friends and family.
