Robert Duncan Paintings...

We received a real e-mail treat this weekend. Friends from England sent us a slideshow of the amazing artistry of Robert Duncan. I was able to find it on YouTube. You do know that everything is on YouTube! I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Thank you, Penny and John!

P.S. Except for the mountains, the location could be Wisconsin. Remember, these are NOT photographs, but paintings. Spectacular!









My favorite? Farms are for Kids - Perhaps because it reminds me of growing up on a farm - or perhaps because it makes me think of the DNR...and a smile, involuntarily, comes to my face. :-)



You can purchase Robert Duncan's work at Robert Duncan Studios.

Nice set of themed farm and country paintings with rousing music worthy of a place in your blog. It's difficult to imagine that they are all paintings as the clip progresses as I became involved in some of the scenes.

Oh!! my husband loves these paintings! We have enjoyed browsing them on and off last year. Such a talent!

I had to check in and see how you are doing in those freezing temperatures!
Hope you are warm!

They're incredible. Took me back to my childhood and the times I visited my great-grandfather's farm.

It's a lovely thought, isn't it Robin. A far cry from my visor, shorts, and mud boots. :-)

Hi Cranberry.........love that name! Course I tell you that every time. I have a big picture in my dining room called April Showers. It reminds me so of when I was growing up in Alaska. I homesteaded with my parents and brother and sister. He does a beautiful job painting.
